Welcome!

MONTENEGRO GROUP

Supramolecular Chemical and Synthetic Biology

Check out the great video that the Chemical Science and the Royal Society have made for our paper in CRISPR/Cas9 delivery mediated by hydrazone amphiphilic peptides!

Dr Montenegro has been awarded with the Prize for the Young Investigators of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (Real Sociedad Española de Química, RSEQ)!!!

Check out in the following links some of the different press releases from this prestigous award!

All credits go to the excellent students of the group and their great efforts and contributions. Many Thanks to all of you guys!!
