Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
Our research interests span diverse topics in Bioorganic and Organic Chemistry. Inquiry within our laboratory is performed through organic synthesis. The rest of the time, we do whatever it takes to design our molecules and characterize and analyze their desired function.
Currently, we are interested in the following areas of research:
Biomimetic/Bioinspired Oxidation Chemistry
Materials for Drug Discovery
Novel Targets for Anti-Infectives
We also participate in various collaborations that allow us to synthesize molecules that resemble natural substances, including:
Nonnatural Amino Acids
