II. Medicinal Chemistry
Medicinal chemistry offers the organic chemist the opportunity to
study the effects of small organic molecules in a biological setting.
We use our chemistry to synthesize lead compounds. Our collaborators at
Roswell Park Cancer Center in Buffalo, NY, test these compounds for
anticancer activity. Once a promising lead is identified, we combine
our chemical and biological expertise to optimize the structure via
molecular target identification and solution phase focused library
This research is supported
by the American Cancer Society (ACS).
