SPRINGBOARD aims to build excellence platform in the area of advanced discovery of novel antibacterial drugs to strengthen the research potential of the Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis.

We are going to improve our competence in the identification of new enzymatic targets, application of natural products and their synthetic analogues, biopharmaceuticals, antisense and peptide antibiotics as antibacterials, as well as experience on biofilm formation and quorum sensing molecules as targets for new antibacterial therapies.

In doing so, we will learn from our advanced foreign partners: the University of Antwerp, the University of Copenhagen, the University of Florence and the University of Helsinki.
