Research

Our research program focuses on the development and application of advanced chemical biology and systems biology technologies to both define the mechanisms of bacterial pathogenesis and identify potential therapeutic agents. We are pursuing the development of technologies for natural product discovery including innovative methods for compound isolation, screening, and diversification. We are also utilizing state of the art metabolomic and proteomic methods to map the biochemical pathways associated with bacterial pathogenesis and antibiotic resistance. Projects in my research group are highly multidisciplinary and incorporate organic synthesis, chromatography, mass spectrometry, structure elucidation, proteomics, metabolomics, biochemistry, microbiology, and molecular biology.
