Welcome to the Sejer Research Group!
GPCR Medicinal Chemistry
Our research group is based at the Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The focus of our research is the design and synthesis of new receptor ligands to be used as tool compounds for elucidating the structure, function and signalling of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). We approach this challenge by design and synthesis of:
- small molecule ligands that target the extracellular surface of GPCRs, and
- peptidomimetics that target the intracellular surface of GPCRs
