The Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery in Microorganisms research interest group uses functional, phenotypic, and structure-based methods to identify targets and lead drugs for infectious diseases caused by eubacteria (Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and  protists (Trypanosoma brucei, and Leishmania species). In addition, we employ drug-like molecules as probes of biological pathways.
