(Latviešu) LZP tematisko pētījumu projektu konkurss – kas īsti slēpjas aiz skaisti skanošā “starptautiskā izvērtējuma”?
Our lab has recently obtained state-of-the-art equipment for studying biomolecular interactions based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR, Biacore T200 instrument) and isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC, MicroCal iTC200 instrument) techniques. Both instruments will facilitate our drug discovery efforts, in particular, the Biacore T200 will be used for fragment screening and the MicroCal iTC200 will aid in structure-based design. Importantly, these methods are very much complementary to NMR and in many cases provide a (better) alternative to tasks such as fragment library screening and determination of binding affinities and thermodynamics.
Professor Edvards Liepinsh is a pioneer of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in Latvia. The award acknowledges his exceptional contributions to the development of NMR in Latvia as a widely applicable method for biomedical and pharmaceutical research, materials science, and clinical diagnostics. His work has led to the establishment of a regional centre of NMR expertise at the Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis.
