Anders Hallberg's research interests encompass a range of protein targets of pharmaceutical relevance, including proteases and G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). One of the primary themes is to identify novel and selective low molecular weight ligands for these targets. New strategies are developed for both the design and for the synthesis of small, drug-like molecules. Lead compounds are optimized using computer-aided techniques and are preferentially synthesized using high-speed chemistry and new efficient transition metal-catalyzed reactions developed in our laboratory. Considerable efforts have in particular been devoted to the development of new robust and useful palladium-catalyzed C-C bond forming reactions. Major indications that are addressed are the infectious disease Malaria and infections caused by HIV and HCV (Hepatitis C Virus).
