|Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Design
Research Interests: Our laboratory is focused on the application of medicinal and synthetic organic chemistry toward the development of potential new therapeutic agents. We rely on structure based drug design and ligand based drug design techniques as well traditional medicinal chemistry principles to design these new molecules. Our research is highly collaborative and we are engaged in projects with a number of groups looking at new drug targets for anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-caner agents.
