We are a chemistry lab who apply organic synthesis in medicinal chemistry and chemical biology. Central to our work is synthetic methods development and discovery of molecules that improve human health.
Methods that install boron and silicon atoms into carbon-carbon bonds
Branched peptides as molecular scaffold to target HIV-1 RNA structures
Inhibitors of sphingosine kinases and S1P transporters for the potential treatment of multiple sclerosis, metastatic cancers and kidney fibrosis.
Mitochondrial uncouplers against fatty liver disease, obesity, and aging.
