The Peri Lab


The research interests of Francesco Peri's group at the Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences of the University of Milano-Bicocca span the disciplines of organic, bioorganic and medicinal chemistry with an emphasis of study of the interactions between small molecules and their biological (pharmacological) targets. The research activity of the lab focused in last year in the design, synthesis and biological characterization of small molecules (mainly cationic and anionic glycolipids) able to modulate the activity of the Toll Like Receptor 4 (TLR4) in the perspective to develop new generations of TLR-directed therapeutics.

F Peri coordinates the MSCA-ETN action TOLLerant (TOll-like receptor 4 modulation in health and disease: a chemical-biology approach).

F Peri Lab is organizing the international symposium MicrobiotaMi 2018
