Raik Artschwager received his chemistry degree from the Georg-August University of Goettingen in Germany. During his study he was an ERAMSMUS student in 2009 at the University of Manchester working on benzannulation reactions applying synthetic organic chemistry. He finished his diploma thesis in 2012 in the field of peptide chemistry working on the synthesis of integration host factor mimics and the implementation of artificial amino acids as cisplatin binding site for improved selectivity.
In 2013 he started his PhD in the field of Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology at the University of Utrecht (Netherlands) after which he moved with the research group to the University of Glasgow (UK). During that time he was working on the synthesis of peptido sulfonyl fluorides as irreversible inhibitors of the 20S proteasome including their biological evaluation and was awarded his PhD in 2017.
In 2018, Raik joined the Glycotechnology research group at CIC biomaGUNE in San Sebastián where he is currently working on the synthesis of a library of N-glycan mimetics for targeting C-type lectin receptors.
