Welcome to the MAPYRO website
MAPYRO is a Groupement de Recherche (GDR) structure created under the auspices of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and French Universities. Our goal is to unite the efforts of all French chemists in the field of polypyrrolic macrocycles. All fields are concerned, from the synthesis to the characterization and properties or reactivity.
The purposes of this website are information exchange, inventory of expertise, sharing news, posting job and internship opportunities, surveying recent publications in the field, conference announcements, and communication between all members.
The GDR is organized around three major research axis
- Biomimetic Catalysts and Small Molecule Activation
(Coordinator: A. Aukauloo)
- Supramolecular Chemistry of Porphyrin Scaffolds
(Coordinator: V. Heitz)
- Poly-pyrroles in Therapeutic Chemistry
(Coordinator: V. Sol)
To keep alive the spirit of the famous conferences in Brixen 2014, this fourth PDD-PDT symposium will involve interesting discussions between young and senior researchers, poster presentations, oral presentations, and invited talks by guests from the sphere of academic research mainly focused on clinical PDT applications.
