On behalf of the Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry, Prof. Maciej Kubicki, we cordially invite you to the lecture, which will be held on December 1, 2022 (Thursday) at 10:15 am in room 2.61 at the Faculty of Chemistry.
The lecture on "Nucleobase-containing amino acids and peptides: synthesis, properties and applications." will be given by Dr Giovanni N. Roviello of the Istituto di Biostrutture e Bioimmagini Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (IBB-CNR) in Naples.
Nucleobase-bearing aminoacids, also known as nucleoamino acids, and nucleobase-decorated peptides, often referred to as nucleopeptides are molecules in some cases found in nature and more often synthetically obtained that disclose a cornucopia of applications in the materials fields and biomedicine, to cite only a few. In this talk an introduction on the main research activities of Dr. Giovanni N. Roviello, Ph.D., researcher at Institute of Biostructures and Imaging (IBB) of the Italian National Council for Research (CNR), will be firstly provided. Moreover, the chemistry of nucleopeptides and their monomeric constituents and some other related nucleobase/amino acid-containing structures will be presented alongside with some of their biomedical relevant applications.
