Research Interests:

  • Broad field of organic synthesis
  • Medicinal chemistry
    • Investigation of cell surface ion exchangers as expedient molecular targets for a new brain cancer therapy
    • Synthesis of cell surface ion exchange inhibitors and their prodrug forms
  • Polymer chemistry
    • Study of the alkoxyamine (RONH2) functional grup in new materials as versatile ligating sites for carbonyl (e.g. aldehyde/ketone) substrates
    • Synthesis and characterization of alkoxyamine polymers
    • Testing the alkoxyamine polymers for the selective immobilization, molecular presentation, and controlled release of various carbony compounds (i.e. pharmaceuticals, biomolecules)
