Photocage Cap for mRNAs

Almost all eukaryotic messenger RNAs (mRNAs) are modified at their 5'-ends by a cap that is synthesised by addition of a 7-methylguanosine attached via a 5'-5' triphosphate bridge to the first transcribed nucleotide of the mRNA chain.

Artificial Interferons

Interferons are a family of proteins that were originally named for their ability to interfere with viral replication and propagation. To date, it is known that interferons are also involved in combating bacterial and parasitic infections, inhibit cell division, and promote or impede the differentiation of cells.

Schutzhülle aus Hefezellen

Hefezellen fallen bei der Produktion von Bier und Bioethanol als Nebenprodukt an und sind daher günstig verfügbar.

Aptamer D3P-21

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. In particular, hormone refractory prostate cancer is not curable and targeted therapies are yet not available.


There are currently 200 million people suffering from osteoporosis worldwide. Low bone mass and deteriorating bone quality lead to an increased risk of fractures, high morbidity and increased mortality.

Click-Mass Spectrometry of lipids

Aberrations in fatty acid metabolism are associated with pathological states and have become a focus of current research, particularly due to the interest in metabolic overload diseases.

HTRA inhibitors

High Temperature Requirement A (HTRA) proteins are serine proteases of the S1 family (trypsin/chymotrypsin-like). HTRA1 is supposed to play a role in macular degeneration, and HTRA2 has been associated with cell death in reperfusion-ischemia.

Anti-tuberculosis drug

Tuberculosis resulting from infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) is a serious global health problem accounting for 1.7 million deaths in 2016. A major reason for the high morbidity and mortality caused by Mtb is the long duration of therapy and increasing multidrug-resistance of Mtb strains.

EF-Tu-binding Re-complexed antibiotics

A series of novel Re(I)-(CO)3-N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes bearing unsubstituted benzimidazol-2-ylidene ligands as well as a variety of bisimine ligands has been prepared and comprehensively characterised.


The generation of cardiomyocytes (CMs) from pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) holds great promise for cardiac regenerative medicine.

Novel Anti-Tuberculosis Compounds

The resurgence of tuberculosis, caused primarily by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), and the appearance of multi‐drug and extensively drug resistant Mtb strains strengthen the need for new drugs with alternative modes of action.

TiDEC (OligoThymidine-initiated-DNA-Encoded)

The need of new drugs is high in many medical indications, for instance in oncology, and infectious diseases. However, the success rate of drug research and development has declined to unsustainable levels.

A Multifunctional Linker for CAR T-cells

Chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) have been developed for the molecular engineering of effector T-cells to be used in targeted cancer therapy. CARs consist of the antigen-binding single-chain fragment (scFv) of an antibody fused via a hinge region to a transmembrane domain (TM) and to one or more intracellular signalling co-stimulatory regions.

CEACAM1 antibodies for anti-viral therapy

Cytotoxic CD8-positive T cells constitute the crucial leukocyte subpopulation for a cellular response against viral infection.

P2Y 12-receptor antagonist

Purinergic receptors have been in the focus of drug discovery for many years. Modulation of P2 receptors in platelets is of paramount importance in regulating platelet function, and as a consequence, in controlling thrombotic diseases, which are the most common cause of morbidity and mortality in the Western world.

Parthenolide and its derivatives for use in the treatment of axonal damage

Peripheral nerve damage is a common cause of considerable functional morbidity, and healthcare expenditure.

NHR2 inhibitors

The formation and onset of the prevalent form of acute myeloid leukemia (AML, FAB subtype M2) requires RUNX1/ETO, the product of the t(8;21) chromosomal translocation.

Druggable oncogenic fusions

Cancer patients frequently bear therapeutically relevant genome alteration. For instance, lung adenocarcinomas of patients that have never smoked carry genome alterations affecting kinases, such as EGFR mutations and translocations affecting ALK, ROS1 and RET genes.


Adenosine is a modulator of many physiological and pathophysiological processes in the central nervous system (CNS).


Exosomes are nano-sized, secreted cell organelles that are released by a huge variety of different cell species, including mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Containing a combination of lipids and proteins as well as RNAs, exosomes participate in intercellular communication processes.

CorA as anthelmintic (Human filariasis)

Human filariasis (elephantiasis and river blindness) is caused by the nematodes W. bancrofti and O. volvulus, transmitted via blood sucking insects.

Synthetic Cytokine Receptors

Synthetic cytokine receptors (SyCyRs) enable defined background-free cellular responses through addition of synthetic ligands. The system allows the engineering of highly specific amplification or eradication switches for recombinant cells.

Chromosomal rearrangements in lung cancer

The invention allows to predict tumor responsiveness to FGFR inhibitor treatment, hence, it can serve as a diagnostic tool to guide personalized precision medicine in cancer treatment.

Novel therapy for Metachromatic Leukodystrophy

The technology relates to a variant of the enzyme arylsulphatase A characterised by increased blood-brain barrier permeability, catalytic activity and half-life, and which is suitable for the treatment of metachromatic leukodystrophy by an enzyme replacement therapy.

New Cryptophycins for ADC and SMDC

The present invention combines new synthetic ways to new Cryptophycin derivatives with alternative conjugation possibilites and pico-molar cytotoxicies, for ADC and SMDC synthesis.


Cancer is one of the main causes of death worldwide. One of the newer therapeutic approaches is photodynamic therapy (PDT), a treatment that uses a photosensitizing chemical substance, a particular type of light and oxygen.

Cholinergic activity enhancer

Acetylcholine (ACh) is an essential neurotransmitter with a major function in the central and peripheral nervous system. Furthermore, ACh plays a crucial role in the autonomic nervous system stimulating preganglionic parasympathetic and sympathetic nerve fibres and postganglionic parasympathetic neurons.

Spray freeze-drying

Spray freeze-drying combines the advantageous properties of the well-established techniques spray drying and freeze-drying.
