Ian Seiple, PhD

Associate Professor

Our research focuses on the application of modern chemical synthesis to biological challenges. Primary branches include complex molecule synthesis, reaction development, and de novo molecular design. Each project is chosen based on its fundamental scientific merit and its potential for immediate...

Michael Keiser, PhD

Assistant Professor

Our group investigates how drugs affect entire networks of proteins in the body at once to achieve their therapeutic effects, via computational predictions paired with experimental testing.

Brian Shoichet, PhD

Professor

Our lab develops new methods for drug discovery, adopting two strategies to do so. On the one hand, we reduce biology to its molecular components, and seek to change how these fit together using synthetic molecules we design. On the other hand, we investigate how the biological molecules operate...

Michelle Arkin, PhD

Department Chair and Professor

My research focuses on the development of drug-like molecules that alter important biological processes. These molecules will help us understand human biology and may lead to the design of new drugs. I also chair the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry.
