Biopolymer- and Peptide-Based Therapeutics and Chemical/Biochemical Analysis
Our group works on research projects in the areas of Biopolymer- and Peptide-Based Therapeutics and Chemical/Biochemical Analysis. We utilize the power of organic synthesis, cell-free protein synthesis, and data-enabled approaches to:
i) understand and solve problems in these areas from the conceptual and methodological levels; and
ii) develop molecular tools for diseases therapy and low-cost analytical methods.
Students in the Yoshimatsu lab gain the skills to perform research in one or more of the areas described above. In other words, each student will have an opportunity to work either on a project that focuses on one of these research areas or on an interdisciplinary project that allows for acquiring a broad set of skills.
