The drug design laboratory is located in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Concepción, is led by Dr. Alexis Salas Burgos. In our laboratory we investigate the development of new drugs using tools from the computational biology, bioinformatics, molecular and cell biology. In our lab so interdisciplinary development projects are done in teams among students in the chemical area, biochemistry, computer and electronics are privileged.

Mision. Investigate relation structure-functions and molecular mechanisms from carrier proteins and antibodies-like particles for use in the development of new drug therapies or biotechnological applications.

Vision. To become a reference laboratory in designing drugs to carrier proteins and the molecular design of carriers and antibodies synthetic with therapeutic and biotechnological applications.
