Faculty members of the Drug Discovery research core are broadly interested in bioorganic and natural product chemistry; biosynthesis of microbial secondary metabolites; and work at the interface of molecular genetics, enzymology, and chemistry toward the goal of creating and developing novel, pharmaceutically active compounds that are useful in the treatment of infectious disease and cancer. Structurally complex natural products are being isolated from diverse biological organisms living in marine and terrestrial ecosystems all over the world.
