Area of Doctoral Study: Chemistry
Undergraduate Institute: University of West Florida
Research Advisor: Kathy Seley-Radtke, Ph.D.
Description of Research
The Seley-Radtke research group is focused on the discovery, design and synthesis of nucleoside/nucleotide and heterocyclic enzyme inhibitors with chemotherapeutic emphasis in the areas of anticancer, antiviral, antibiotic, and antiparasitic targets. Primary goals include development of potent inhibitors to shut down disease replication pathways through a combination of cross-disciplinary synthetic, biological screening, mechanistic, and structure-based drug design techniques
