Faculty in the Program in Chemical Biology at OHSU have a strong interest and expertise in chemistry. Each faculty member also has a different area of biological expertise including steroid/thyroid hormone action, ion channel biology, gene transcription, and GPCR pharmacology. Chemical Biology faculty create novel small molecules and use them to dissect complex biological systems. Designed molecules are not only uniquely specific probes of proteins, cells and animals, but also represent an initial step in the development of drugs used to treat human disease. Indeed, drug discovery is a viable potential outcome for research in the Program in Chemical Biology.
