Research Description

The overall objective of the research projects in my laboratory is to design and develop novel antitumor agents that will extend the productive lives of patients who have cancer. My research program in medicinal chemistry depends upon a structure-based approach to drug design that is intertwined with a clinical oncology program in cancer therapeutics directed by Professor Daniel Von Hoff in the Arizona Cancer Center.
