Jorge is currently a Newton Fellow at the Imperial College London within the Department of Chemistry in the Supramolecular and Medicinal Inorganic Chemistry group ( He is sponsored by the Royal Society and his research interest deals on (i) the design and synthesis of new molecular probes to (ii) evaluate the interaction with unusual DNA/RNA structures such as mismatches, triplexes or quadruplexes through in vitro and in vivo studies. The final aim is the identification of new selective drugs for unusual nucleic acid structures and their application in anticancer and diagnostic therapies.
