Our research involves the use of synthetic organic chemistry to shed light on
questions in biology and medicine. In each research area the goal is to understand
or manipulate a biological system, but the tools that we use are small to medium
sized organic molecules designed for that purpose. We perform the syntheses of
the needed molecular tools in our lab and often the preliminary biological
experiments, although we also collaborate with people around the world who are
experts in the biological systems.
Some projects of current interest in the group are listed below. Please click
