Welcome to our group!

Our group’s primary interest is the structural and functional characterization of enzymes. In particular, we are interested in the mechanistic details of enzyme catalyzed reactions, structural role of disulfide linkages, and the development of selective small molecule inhibitors.

Please see the research page for detailed descriptions of current projects in the group.
