Chemical biology is a major focus of YBRI’s interdisciplinary biomedical research. The strength of this research area lies in the use of chemical tools and approaches that are tailored to answering specific biological questions.

Research interests include the development of bioconjugation reactions for understanding and treating disease (Fascione, Spicer), chemical probes for studying and manipulating carbohydrate active enzymes in relation to a variety of human disorders (Davies, Willems), and the role of transition metal ions in biology and medicine (Duhme-Klair).
