WELCOME

Members of the Chruma Lab are interested in applying new synthetic methods and small molecule constructs toward the discovery and manipulation of important biomolecular interactions. Specific research efforts in the Chruma Lab focus on 1) the development of efficient C–C bond-forming transformations, 2) the total synthesis of bioactive natural products and 3) the design and synthesis of novel small molecule architectures for the modulation of specific biomolecular interactions involved in cellular differentiation and apoptosis. For more information about Prof. Chruma, Chruma Lab members or current research projects, please follow the links to the left.
