Lab team

Our laboratory has a strong focus on chemical biology and early-stage drug discovery. We integrate an array of multi-disciplinary approaches at the interface of biology and chemistry. Our team collaborates closely with other labs at our institute and industry partners targeting infectious disease and cancer.
