We are a chemical biology laboratory focused on the development of technologies to map molecules, cells, and functional circuits. We apply the technologies to understand signaling in the mitochondria and mammalian brain.
Our technologies draw from protein engineering, directed evolution, chemical synthesis, high-resolution microscopy, genetics, and computational analysis.
