研究方向


面向当前创新药物研究中的挑战,何伟研究组主要在下述两个方向展开研究。(1)金属纳米有机催化。根据精细化学品和药物合成的需求,我们立足于金属纳米材料的可控合成,通过调控催化剂活性来实现高效高选择性的有机反应, 包括含硅化合物的合成化学和化学生物学研究; (2)基于片段的药物发现。我们结合片段筛选和基于结构的药物设计,发现特异性靶向新型、可药性低的蛋白靶点的功能有机小分子(如溴域蛋白、去泛素化酶等),并展开化学生物学及早期药物发现工作。   


科学贡献

用硅来替代药物分子中的碳的策略是药物研发中的一个合理而又诱人的途径。要实现这一策略,必须克服方法,合成和概念上的诸多挑战。我们从发展新化学方法入手,合成了多种新型的硅替代药物单元和药物分子,并在临床前研究中展示了这一策略的诱人前景。我们在研究中,使用多学科交叉手段,包括纳米材料合成,有机化学,药物化学,以及基于片段的药物设计等,促进了这些手段的融合。
