Group Lochner

Research Focus:

The general theme of our research is the chemical synthesis and development of small molecular tools that can be used for the cellular study and chemical modification of ion channels, receptors and transporters. With these molecular probes we aim at complementing molecular biology techniques and offering attractive alternatives to the biological research community. We mainly focus on:

  • Biologically active tool compounds for research
  • Fluorescent receptor ligands (antagonists and agonists)
  • Photo-crosslinking probes
  • Fluorescent turn-on probes for protein labelling
