In our team, the field of research is the design, synthesis and biological evaluation of new heterocyclic compounds with potential pharmacological applications. In the beginning, we developed projects aimed to obtain new agents against Chagas ́ Disease, as well as, to control some plagues of agronomical interest.

Currently, we are address our research in the study of new heterocyclic compounds with antitumor properties and in the elucidation of action mechanisms of these molecules. Specifically, the signaling pathway that we have considered is the Hedgehog pathway and their protein related as eventual targets in some cancer, such as pancreatic, lung and colorectal cancer.
