DGPF price for outstanding dissertation
We congratulate Dr. Stephanie Heinzlmeir for being awarded with promotion prize of the German Society for Proteome Research (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Proteomforschung) for her outstanding dissertation.
The dissertation termed "When chemical proteomics meets medicinal chemistry: Guided drug discovery towards EPHA2 inhibitors" investigates novel drug targets for the receptor tyrosine kinase EPHA2. Chemical proteomics was used to identify clinical EPHA2 inhibitors, to select a lead structure for medicinal chemistry, and to guide the design and synthesis of EPHA2 inhibitors. The award winning thesis offers new insights EPHA2 inhibition and novel drug tool compounds.
