About us

The FAU Research Center “New Bioactive Compounds” (FAU NeW) promotes outstanding research at FAU and Universitätsklinikum Erlangen on new bioactive compounds, their targets and mechanisms of action and strengthens collaboration in the field of bioanalytics. For this purpose, internationally renowned researchers from pharmaceutical science, food chemistry, and pharmacology combine their research activities in interdisciplinary teams. In this environment, the FAU NeW members develop and optimize drug candidates, bioactive food components and formulations. Another focus is on the identification of new target proteins and studies on target–ligand interactions and the role of target proteins in signal transduction.
