Our Organic research takes place at the interface of organic chemistry with other areas such as biology, medicine, materials science, and nanotechnology. Specific areas of interest include protein glycosylation and protein design, chemosensors, continuous flow synthesis, liquid crystals, supramolecular catalysis, and more.

Two graduate students talk about their research in a lab.
