EUniWell is a new partnership between 7 European Universities. This Research Collaborative Network is one of its flagship initiatives and seeks to explore the design, biochemical action and biomedical activity of new agents (particularly, but not exclusively, metal-containing molecules and nanostructures) that target unusual DNA or RNA structural motifs relevant to cancer and viral disease. It is led by: Professors Mike Hannon and Zoe Pikramenou at University of Birmingham, Professor Sylvestre Bonnet at Leiden University and Professor Luigi Messori at Università degli Studi di Firenze.
All EUniWell researchers and staff are welcome. Please register using the Eventbrite link. Joining details will be circulated via email to registered attendees prior to the event.
