Welcome - AK Hausch

Welcome to the Hausch group!

Overview of Structure-based Drug Research:

  • Rational Drug Design
  • Identification and validation of novel pharmacological concepts
  • Synthesis of macro- or polycyclic substances to control the bioactive conformation
  • Quantitative understanding of protein-ligand interactions
  • Development of FKBP51 inhibitors as novel antidepressants, analgesics or anti-obesity agents
