Biomolecular Transformations and Analysis Research Groups
Group Website Research Specifics
Baker, Bill Baker, Bill
Cai, Jianfeng Cai, Jianfeng Design, synthesis and investigation of bioactive peptidomimetics; development of novel biomaterials; development of novel molecular probes and drug candidates; protein and nucleic acid surface recognition and modulation of protein-protein interactions.
Del Valle, Juan Del Valle, Juan Our laboratory is actively engaged in the organic synthesis of peptide mimics, natural products, and their congeners. These compounds are used to probe molecular recognition events and to target disease-relevant pathways. We are particularly fascinated by the impact of structurally complex amino acids on conformation and bioactivity.
Evans-Nguyen, Theresa Evans-Nguyen, Theresa Research in the Evans-Nguyen lab interfaces chemical analysis and engineering principles to explore various aspects of mass spectrometry instrumentation. Chemical targets span the fields of defense, space, and the clinical lab.
