We aim to use the power of chemical synthesis to create molecular-based technologies to improve the quality of life of human beings.
Our research program is focused on chemical synthesis, supramolecular chemistry, and chemical biology. Our expertise studying molecular encapsulation, self-assembly, and responsive materials gives our research group the appropriate perspective to engage in problems at the interphase between chemistry and biology, from the molecular to the cellular scales. Our current studies are broadly aimed at learning fundamental aspects of the structure and dynamics of synthetic supramolecules in complex biological environments, which could in turn have long-term implications to improve human health.
