Cu-complexes as anticancer compounds: Insights in the reactivity with thiols, O2 and the production of reactive oxygen species

Ongoing research projects of his group are in bioinorganics, still partly on the interactions of amyloidogenic peptides with metal ions, metalloproteins and metallopeptides, but also on the development of copper(II) sensors for detection in a biological medium, mechanistic studies of chelators complexed with copper, zinc or iron in their anticancer and antimicrobial activity, and the development of hybrids of antimicrobial peptides and metal-complexes.
