We would like to congratulate Professor of Chemistry Alexander Dömling, PhD. for acquiring the prestigious ERC Advanced grant "Automated, miniaturized and accelerated drug discovery (AMADEUS)“.
Professor Alexander Dömling is the world renowned inventor and innovator in chemistry. He is an ERA chair of the Synthetic Group that was established in 2023 and at the Czech Advanced Technology and Research Institute of Palacký University Olomouc and he is also affiliated to the IMTM. His work "ERA Chair for Accelerated Synthetic Chemistry Technologies at Palacký University Olomouc (ACCELERATOR)" is focused on an unconquered issue of automation in synthetic chemistry, innovative compound-based whole-plant-screening technologies for securing food supply, novel antibacterials addressing the challenge of increasing antimicrobial resistance and breakthrough materials for batteries and supercapacitors enabling energy storage from renewable sources are just few challenges awaiting to be solved by the ACCELERATOR.
In the ERC Advanced Grant his research team will focus on micro-synthesis of biologically active organic molecules for drug discovery. The IMTM researchers will support Alex Dömling with analysis of biological activity in high-throughput microscale assays, preclinical pharmacology, molecular targets selection and validation.
