Exploring the molecular basis of biological processes essential in health and disease
We utilize chemical principles to advance our understanding of the mechanisms of biological phenomena. High-impact basic and translational research is being performed through the integration of chemical synthesis, structural biology, biophysical chemistry, proteomics, drug discovery and state-of-the-art instrumentation. Combination of these tools and approaches facilitates exploration and modulation of processes essential in human health and disease. See more faculty interested in this theme »
