Lab benches with equipment
The Medicinal Chemistry Lab

The lab includes nine fume hoods appropriately equipped for synthetic organic chemistry. We operate two LC/MS instruments, preparative HPLC and medium-pressure LC instruments, and other equipment commonly used for chemical synthesis. The Medicinal Chemistry lab shares NMR and other instruments with other chemistry groups on campus.

These capabilities allow us to mount aggressive medicinal-chemistry campaigns, synthesize select compounds on large scale for animal testing, and prepare tools for chemical biology.
