Research in the Outlaw Lab lies at the intersection of organic synthesis, chemical biology, and biophysics. Using a combination of techniques from these fields, we seek to create molecular architectures as tools to study and therapeutics to treat human disease.
Current areas of focus are: 1) Development of synthetic methodology to access molecular scaffolds of pharmaceutical interest, 2) Design of synthetic peptides with distinct three-dimensional architectures and enhanced properties, and 3) Identification and disruption of viral protein-protein interactions.
