Research in my laboratory follows two intersecting trajectories:
We have used a structural bioinformatics approach to design ultra-specific protein kinase inhibitors. In addition, we have synthesized cotransin, a macrocyclic depsipeptide with potent anti-inflammatory activity. Biochemical and cell biological experiments have revealed its molecular target and mechanism of action.
