Biomolecular chemistry research at Emory address problems at the interface of chemistry and biology. Our investigations are interdisciplinary, combining organic synthesis, biochemistry, genomics, molecular biology, and protein engineering, as well as molecular modeling and structure determination utilizing a wide range of biophysical techniques.

Inspired by our discoveries in the world of natural biomolecules, we are also harnessing the power of Darwinian evolution to explore synthetic biology, from the creation of novel biocatalysts with tailored properties to the production of biomimetic sensors and materials.

Our research is assisted by the latest in robotics and analytical instrumentation as well as collaborations with the Emory University School of Medicine, the Emory Vaccine Center, and beyond.
