Chemical biology/biochemistry involves the application of chemical techniques, analysis, and often small molecules produced through synthetic chemistry, to manipulate and interrogate biological systems. Our research focuses on chemical probes for epigenetic regulations, fluorescent probes for live cell imaging, small molecule/ligand-protein interactions, and proteolysis-targeting chimera (PROTAC)-based protein knockdown. BCM resources that support this research include the NMR and Drug Metabolism Core, the Mass Spectrometry Proteomics Core, the Integrated Microscopy Core, and the Optical Imaging and Vital Microscopy Core.
