LAM is a part of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Medicines (CIRM) and has developed strong collaborations with the Interdisciplinary Group for Applied Genoproteomics (GIGA-R), University Hospital Center (CHU of Liege) and more recently with the industry Sirris (Liege Science Park).
The scientific activity covers 4 main topics:
- Development of innovative separation methods (microfluidics, on-line and in-line microreactors…)
- Fundamental studies (proteins interactions in native form, chiral drug recognition patterns,…)
- Discovery and quantification of proteic and metabolic biomarkers
- Drug quality control and counterfeiting medicines combat
These 4 topics concern not only synthetic drugs but also therapeutic macromolecules (peptides, proteins, siRNA and nanomedicines) including biological entities (virus like particules).
Our research topics are illustrated here with an example of application.
