Our lab is focused on the development of novel cancer chemotherapeutic drugs targeting different biomolecular targets. To achieve these goals, we are utilizing the concepts and techniques in computer-assisted molecular modeling to design the molecules, organic chemistry to synthesize the molecules and biological assays to evaluate the molecules in cancer-relevant models. In addition, we are also interested in the development of nanotechnology to deliver nucleic acids into the cells.
