Area(s) of Expertise

We are employing synthetic chemistry to tackle problems in chemical biology and drug discovery. Through the development of novel reactions we aim to synthesize complex natural products and use targeted modifications to lend insight into their biological mechanism of action. Ultimately, these efforts will uncover novel drug lead compounds for further development.
