Sylvia Teresse Ceyer

John C Sheehan Professor
The Ceyer group explores the atomic level dynamics of the interactions of molecules with surfaces of materials that serve as catalysts relevant to energy production and environmental sustainability or as templates for nanodevices.

Rick Lane Danheiser

A C Cope Professor
Current investigations in our laboratory focus on the development of new synthetic methods and strategies, and their application in the total synthesis of natural products and biologically important compounds.

Catherine L. Drennan

Professor
By combining X-ray crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy and other biophysical methods, the goal of the Drennan lab is to “visualize” molecular processes by obtaining snapshots of enzymes in action.

John M. Essigmann

William R. and Betsy P. Leitch Professor
Research in the Essigmann Group focuses on how repair enzymes remove structural damage from DNA and on how the adducts that evade repair either kill cells or induce mutations and cancer.

Robert W. Field

Haslam and Dewey Professor
Tunable lasers, often two or three simultaneously, are used in Field's Current Research Group to investigate the structural and dynamical properties of small, gas phase molecules.
