The Bioinorganic and Medicinal Research Group was founded in
2009 and it is located at the Institute of Chemistry of the
University of Campinas-UNICAMP, Brazil. The group is composed by
undergraduate, masters and Ph.D students, which are involved in
the development of new metallodrugs for many applications.
Design, synthesis and characterization of new compounds of
platinum, palladium, copper, silver and gold. Evaluation of the
activities of the compounds as antibacterial and antitumor
agents. Studies of the interaction of the compounds with
biomolecules such as DNA and proteins by biophysical assays.
Training quality human resources for research in medicinal and
bioinorganic chemistry, development of new medicines for the
treatment of skin bacterial infections, search for new
anticancer agents based on cisplatin and analogs.
