Research Description:
Our research takes advantage of chemical tools to study and manipulate biological systems. We are especially interested in antibiotic resistance, P450 enzymes and biocatalysis (towards green chemistry). The methods used range from medicinal chemistry and organic synthesis, to enzymology, molecular biology, biophysical studies, and more.
