This project aims to unite global efforts to target the highly druggable class of enzymes called cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDEs) in the fight for neglected parasitic diseases (NPD). It will establish a drug discovery platform, PDE4NPD, that combines phenotypic screening with efficient target-centric drug discovery, including target validation, various strategies for compound screening, ...

Molecular basis of the outer membrane permeability (TRANSLOCATION)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2017,

Overcoming the barriers that the cell envelope and efflux pumps provide to Gram-negative bacteria is a major bottleneck in the discovery and development of new antibiotics. To respond to this Call we are extending our current network on antibiotic translocation and propose an ambitious project ranging from identification of novel resistance mechanisms in clinical bacterial isolates to crystallizat ...

Kinetics for Drug Discovery (K4DD) (K4DD)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

... inity and selectivity. For us, integration means analyzing the kinetic behavior of different targets (GPCRs, kinases, proteases) across the three work packages. The partners in the consortium are European key players: they elucidate(d) structures of GPCRs and kinases, are at the forefront of bioanalytical techniques, e.g. surface plasmon resonance, are world-leaders in PKPD modeling, and bring the ...

MOLECULAR BASIS OF ANTIBIOTIC TRANSLOCATION (Translocation)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Aug 31, 2017,

Multidrug resistant bacteria are now ubiquitous in both hospitals and the larger community. Drug-resistant pathogens are becoming increasingly pervasive, for example, the resurrection of tuberculosis provides one ominous example highlighting the risk associated with evolved drug resistance. Moreover, many pharmaceutical companies abandoned this field and no truly novel active antibacterial compoun ...

... ght disturb the circadian clocks and severely disrupt endocrine and metabolic processes, contributing to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes/obesity. Especially shift workers constituting 20% of the European working population are affected by this prob-lem. Until now only few studies investigating circadian rhythm disturbances in the context of type 2 diabetes/obesity have been conducted in man. ...

Atherosclerosis and its most disabling sequelae, coronary artery disease (CAD) and stroke, are leading causes of death in Europe. Until now, preventive and therapeutic interventions for these diseases aim at ameliorating the effects of established cardiovascular risk factors. More recently, results of genome-wide association (GWA) studies added to our perception of mechanisms leading to atheroscle ...

New Medicines for Trypanosomatidic Infections (NMTRYPI)

Start date: Feb 1, 2014, End date: Jan 31, 2017,

The infectious diseases burden imposed by the parasites of Trypanosomatidae family represents a huge problem on people’s lives in countries where these diseases are endemic. Problems associated with existing drugs include inefficient delivery, insufficient efficacy, excessive toxicity and increasing resistance. New drugs are urgently needed now and in the foreseeable future. The New Medicine for T ...

Cell-based screenings are today a necessary tool for all types of clinical development and/or market approval of new drugs and chemicals. The major change in the last decade is a shift towards more physiologically relevant yet complex and sensitive cell models, like stem cells, and more recently, the shift to human induced pluripotent cells. Stem-cell technology has the potential to revolutionize ...
