Drug Discovery Seminars: Jarkko Rautio

“The expanding role of prodrugs in drug design and development”. Jarkko Rautio is professor in pharmaceutical chemistry at the School of Pharmacy, University of Eastern Finland (UEF). His research focuses on the chemistry-based methods, especially prodrugs, to overcome drug delivery liabilities of problematic drug candidates. He has published over 50 papers and book chapters on prodrugs – two of these in Nature publication series. Much of his research is currently focusing on exploiting one of the body’s natural mechanisms for transporting amino acids, the LAT1 protein, for targeted drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and cancer cells that express this transporter.
