Lantibiotics in full Screen Novacta’s pharmaceutical research and development focuses on biologically active compounds produced by microorganisms, also known as ‘natural products’. Novacta has identified an exciting class of compounds, known as lantibiotics, as a target for development. The lantibiotics are highly modified peptides, combining the beneficial biological interactions and versatility of peptides with desirable pharmaceutical properties such as stability in the systemic circulation. These compounds have good potential as therapeutic agents, possessing a broad range of biological activities.
Fighting Drug resistance
Lantibiotics have shown promising activity against bacteria resistant to commonly used antibacterials, including methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). These compounds have not previously progressed to clinical trials, however, because their complex structure has made it difficult to optimise their activity through conventional routes. Novacta’s innovative technology platform is designed to address this issue, enabling the structure of these complex molecules to be customised to order during their biosynthesis.
New Therapeutic Areas
As a result of the wide variety of structures that can be generated by Novacta’s technology platform, we are currrently in the process of developing several novel drug candidates within therapeutic areas including anti-virals, oncology and respiratory diseases.working effectively in their fields of excellence.
What makes us different?
We make sure that everyone blossoms. We keep a human size in a warm and modern setting. All students benefit from individualised support.
All students benefit from individualised support.
I have learned a lot, and I have realised professional projects thanks to the support of the mentors! The team is always at the top and always looking for solutions to problems, I felt accompanied and supported! It's not easy every day, but it's a great adventure!
Thanks to its innovative system, the school offers a diplomatic training during which we are followed by a "mentor", a sort of "tutor"!
Great support and quality courses! A mentor helps you move forward and can be contacted through flexible schedules. Everything you need to start your career on the web.
