Professor Abigail Doyle Professor Arthur Winter

Research in the Winter lab focuses on the development of new chemical tools for biological and medical applications. Philosophically, we take the view that many problems in biology are at heart problems in mechanistic physical organic chemistry. Using a joint theoretical/experimental approach, we design and synthesize chemical tools for biological applications, with a focus on chemical tools that can be manipulated using light.
