About the Center

The Center for Biopharmaceuticals builds on the strong multidisciplinary relationship between the Department of Drug Design and Pharmacologyand the Department of Pharmacy – the two pharmaceutical departments within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

The Center opened on 1 January 2014 and has received a 'beacon' grant of 35 million DKK from the University of Copenhagen over the next five years for studies in protein medicinal chemistry.

Protein Medicinal Chemistry

Our mission is to pioneer technologies that can create proteins with completely novel properties. New types of proteins are necessary to develop advanced protein-based drugs that are stable, specific and readily metabolised in the body. To achieve this, we combine the principles and tools of chemistry with the synthetic strategies and processes of living organisms.
