Carbohydrates play important roles in health and disease and thus are recognised as potential drug targets in various fields of medicine and drug development. Understanding the role of carbohydrates in biological processes can lead to the development of innovative therapies for a wide range of medical conditions.
The chemical synthesis of carbohydrates still presents two major challenges: the regioselective differentiation of several hydroxyls with very similar reactivity and the stereoselective construction of the glycosydic bond. Our group has been working in different multidisciplinary projects involving carbohydrate synthesis, and several of these works will be presented.
