Welcome to BioLab!
In 2004, we started at Universidad de La Laguna (ULL) a Phenotypic Drug Discovery (PDD) initiative whose goal is to use cell-based assays directed at the discovery of pharmacologically active small-molecules, trying to establish general bases for ultimately identifying their mechanism of action.
We have clustered a solid and experienced group of multidisciplinary scientists with expertise in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacy, engineering and microbiology to develop realistic and collaborative research programs on Molecular Pharmacology, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Technology, and Bioprospection of Endemic Plants in the Canary Islands to find therapeutic solutions to human diseases, with a particular focus on -but not limited to- cancer.
Our group is composed by a multidisciplinary team of senior researchers, PhD students and, occasionally, highly motivated undergraduates. We welcome students and postdocs for interships at any time.
