Research Areas: organic chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry; green chemistry organic synthesis. Synthesizing and testing libraries of novel compounds for their biological activity. Understanding the evolutionary aspect of classes of enzymes; using IHC to examine tissue for proteins up-regulated during tumorigenesis or cancer development. These current topics of investigation and those we hope to start in the near future are designed to provide meaningful and informative research projects for any science/chemistry seeking degrees in chemistry or biology.
