PHARMACEUTICAL CHEMISTRY GROUP (Gqf)

The Group of Pharmaceutical Chemistry (GQF) is an inter-departmental research group resulting from the synergy of teaching and research staff of seven structural units of the IQS School of Engineering of the Ramon Llull University (URL).

The structure and the different experts of the GQF members cover virtually all stages of the development of a drug and, in this sense, are a singularity in the Catalan scientific landscape. The GQF research focuses on research in pharmaceutical chemistry (new drugs), pharmaceutical and cosmetic formulation, applied biology and API production in the areas of Biomedicine and Health Sciences. The search for new drugs focuses on:

  • tyrosine-kinase inhibitors with application in cancer (lung, breast and pancreas)
  • compounds with activity in the presence of chemokine receptors (CXCR4 inhibitors)
  • compounds that are active in myotonic dystrophy
