Juan Del Valle
  • NES 331A
N/A  Our laboratory is actively engaged in the organic synthesis of peptide mimics, natural products, and their congeners. These compounds are used to probe molecular recognition events and to target disease-relevant pathways. We are particularly fascinated by the impact of structurally complex amino acids on conformation and bioactivity.
