Abstract: The research in our laboratory focuses on developing molecular probes and biochemical assay for identifying and understanding links between impaired biological mechanisms and diseases. We heavily rely on chemical biology to understand molecular interactions that control cellular equilibrium and use synthetic organic chemistry to produce small molecules to monitor and adjust impaired biochemical processes. The multidisciplinary research environment in the lab provides a diverse platform at the interface of chemistry and biology for student education at any level.
