Dmochowski Group

Welcome!

Research in the Dmochowski lab encompasses many areas of Bioinorganic, Bioorganic, and Biophysical Chemistry, as well as Chemical Biology. Our lab is comprised of people with backgrounds spanning these disciplines. We are developing small molecules, proteins, and spectroscopic techniques for studying complex biomolecular systems. Our approach involves cycles of molecular design, synthesis, and measurement.
