The research group headed by Prof. Sonia Laín focuses on the discovery and development of new cancer therapies. As an example of the work performed, in collaboration with national drug discovery and development platforms, the group has published the discovery of a new series of potent and specific small molecule inhibitors of the de novo pyrimidine ribonucleotide synthesis pathway (Nature Communications, 2018, 9(1):1107).
