In the Gold Laboratory, we seek to understand the fundamental principles underlying chemical structure and reactivity to develop innovative synthetic tools for chemical biology (and beyond). We utilize both computational and experimental techniques to develop highly specific transformations, novel reagents, and improved technologies. Current endeavors range from the development of novel methods for the processing of nuclear waste to the design and synthesis of both biologically active and biorthogonal reagents. Our research efforts depict that a training in the fundamentals of organic structure and reactivity enables unlimited exploration and discovery within the molecular sciences.
