The direct objective of the Synthesis+ excellence program is to develop and expand the synthetic capacity of ELTE TTK. The indirect goal of the program is to strengthen, coordinate and enhance the synergies between colleagues, workshops and communities related to synthetic works, so that we can be more effective in research, more effective in development, focus on some areas of innovation.
In the coming years, therefore, we are planning to
- strengthen, link and network different synthetic and associated disciplines,
- introduce the practice of competing cooperation,
- catalyze specialty synergy, and
- promote the collaboration between already successful researchers and their workshops and materially support them.

Innovations in peptide chemistry 2020-05-19
Nowadays, the role of polypeptide and protein fragment type macromolecules is growing. Recognizing this, we sought to develop a state-of-the-art and low-cost method that could be a good alternative for researchers.
Advanced mass spectrometry 2020-05-19
The Institute of Chemistry of Eötvös Loránd University was enriched with an extremely valuable and rare mass spectrometer within the framework of the Level Plus Excellence Program. With the help of the instrument, which is unique in the world, our researchers can perform the structural analysis of active pharmaceutical ingredients and peptide- and protein-type molecules more accurately than ever before in the new laboratory named after the physicist István Cornides.

Zoltán Gáspári (PPKE) : Chapters form the structure biology of the coronavirus
Although the 2019-nCoV/SARS-CoV2/COVID-19 virus came into the spotlight of molecular biology research all of a sudden, many details of its life cycle are already known from the study of related viruses. Novel results, obtained continuously at a surprising pace, reveal the specific features of the new virus. In my lecture I provide an overview of the cellular entry, translation and replication of the virus using available protein structural data.
György M Keserű (TTK): Repositioned drugs in COVID-19 infection
Since the COVID-19 outbreak witnessed in the US and Europe, national efforts of social distancing and vaccination should be complemented by effective treatment options. The present time constraints, however, do not allow developing new therapies from scratch. Therefore, most of the treatment protocols involve repositioned drugs originally developed for different indications. This talk gives an overview on the most important treatment options and summarizes the available outcomes.
Péter Ábrányi-Balogh (TTK): ChemLearning
In the ChemLearning program ELTE, BME and TTK lecturers joined in order to help and support the education of organic chemistry at the universities. Our goal is to give a tool of nowadays technology in the lecture rooms and outside the university buildings to the hand of the students and educators. For this reason we are compiling a databank of organic chemistry problems and excercizes that can be used in Canvas and Moodle e-learning systems.
