Research

We are broadly interested in developing new types of organic molecules that display useful functions.  In addition, we seek to understand how proteins, the most diverse class of biomolecules, perform their natural functions.  Our efforts require a wide range of experimental tools, including asymmetric organic synthesis, high-resolution NMR and crystallographic analysis of molecular structure, protein expression and biochemical assays.
