The core of our research is the development of new reactions and the synthesis of organic molecules. Our current efforts include the chemical synthesis of proteins and protein conjugates, new cross-coupling approaches to chiral N-heterocyles, the development of new ligation and cross-coupling reactions, and the application of these processes to chemical biology, soft materials, and catalysis. We believe in making molecules that cannot currently be made by existing technologies.
