The Metzler-Nolte group is working in a number of different areas of Biological and Medicinal Inorganic Chemistry. All projects involve the synthesis of (new) metal complexes, and very often their bioconjugates with peptides or other biomolecules. Most projects are inspired by a question of medicinal relevance, and we collaborate intensely with partners in Biology and Medicine not only in Bochum but also abroad.
This video gives an overview of the various aspects of our work and an outlook to international cooperations in the field of medicinal inorganic chemistry ("Medicinal Inorganic Chemistry" Video at Beilstein.tv )
