Michaelis Lab

The Michaelis Research Group takes a multidisciplinary approach to chemistry that enables advances not only at the interface of two fields, but also within strictly disciplinary research. This capacity derives from an acquired understanding of the scientific approach, methods, and techniques used in other disciplines to solve problems.

The Michaelis Lab intends to establish a research program that employs tools and techniques from other disciplines to solve difficult problems in organic synthesis and catalysis. With the experience and understanding gained through these early investigations, Michaelis researchers will be poised to answer important questions at the interface of chemistry and other fields. Michaelis researchers will have the opportunity to work at the interfaces of inorganic and organic synthesis, polymer science and catalysis, and structural biology and catalysis.
