CSU chemists find way to make improved drugs

FORT COLLINS — CSU chemists have found a way to build more complicated molecules needed for creating drugs.

CSU chemistry professor Tomislav Rovis and others created an artificial enzyme made of metal and organic matter that could change the pharmaceutical industry, the university said. Their findings were published in the latest edition of Science magazine.

“The focus we’re applying is to make more complicated molecules faster for things that have the potential to impact human health,” Rovis said.
The university said the new enzyme could allow scientists to build many more complicated molecules necessary for creating drugs and cut months of work into days.
