Research topics


Organometallic catalysis and domino reactions

Our research program focuses on new synthetic methodologies based on atom an step economical reactions. To this extent, we develop new domino transition metal-catalyzed domino reactions allowing the access to privileged structure in medicinal chemistry.


Medicinal Chemistry : FGFR3 Inhibitors

FGFR3 is a receptor for fibroblast growth factors having a tyrosine kinase activity. Activating mutations of FGFR3 are responsible for certain cancers (bladder, cervical, ...) and a set of abnormal bone growth variable severity (achondroplasia, thanatophoric dwarfism, ...). We are developing the synthesis of several families of molecules to selectively inhibit the kinase activity of FGFR3.
