Short presentation

There is a demand for new chemical entities that can serve as efficient agents for treatment of cognitive disorders. Angiotensin IV, a metabolite in the renin angiotensin system, has shown to improve processes related to memory and learning by inhibiting Insulin-regulated Aminopeptidase (IRAP). In my project, we focus on design, synthesis and biological evaluation of novel small-molecule IRAP inhibitors that might provide a new approach in the treatment of memory disfunction.
