Welcome to the Boddy Lab!



The research interests of my laboratory lie at the interface of chemistry and biology. Using synthetic chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology, we try to determine how microorganisms build complex biologically active molecules. With this knowledge we then try to harness these biosynthetic pathways to produce complex natural products and their analogs. This provides us with biorenewable access to commodity and fine chemicals as well as access to chemical diversity for biomedical applications including drug discovery and molecular pharmacology.
