Creating new molecular concepts and tools for chemical biology and drug development
We are a small but active research group working at the interface of chemistry and biology. In particular, our lab is interested in developing new molecular tools, concepts, and techniques that make it possible to study and control cellular functions in novel ways. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, involving organic chemistry, protein engineering, molecular and cell biology, and bioimaging.
