Research Activity

The interaction of sugars with proteins initiates many biological processes. We can achieve control of these processes using sugar-like structures to antagonize the natural ligands at the protein receptor level. Our group is using chemical knowledge and computational techniques to design and synthesize sugar mimics, based on known structural properties of bioactive oligosaccharides and of their protein complexes.
