Our research focuses on exploring novel therapeutic strategies for cancer through a multi-disciplinary approach, including synthetic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, and biology. We study gene regulatory pathways including epigenetic proteins, chromatin modification enzymes, and transcription factors. We start our effort with designing and developing novel small molecule inhibitors. Using chemical probes and chemical biology tools, we seek understanding of the biological relevance of these targets in cancer with the goal of establishing a biological rationale for cancer therapy. Located at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, our ultimate goal is to develop compounds and strategies that can be used in cancer treatment.
