Inflammatory diseases constitute a complex and heterogeneous group of diseases, being
an important cause of morbidity and mortality. In this project, we intend to develop
translational research in the field of Inflammatory Diseases. In addition, the association
with chemists with training in molecular modeling and synthesis of molecules will
allow the development of new drugs for the treatment of diseases, such as:
1) chronic neuropathic pain;
2) autoimmune inflammatory diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis)
3) Infectious (Sepsis, COVID-19)
The development of the project will allow the development of new molecules that
modulate the activity of biological targets involved in the aforementioned inflammatory
diseases. For this, in vitro and in vivo studies will be carried out with molecules already
identified in screening tests.

Please reference in your cover letter when
applying for or inquiring about this job announcement.
