Our research uses the tools of organic synthesis, bio-organic chemistry, biocatalysis and chemical biology to develop new antibiotics, molecular sensors to study biological systems, and biologically-inspired catalysts for important synthetic transformations.
We seek new antibiotics from natural product and synthetic sources, and build fluorescent probes to study biomolecular targets that include amyloid beta and the estrogen receptor.
