Synthetic and combinatorial chemistry; neurobiology; protein structure and function

Assistant: Annette Luymes

Research in the Hsieh-Wilson group combines organic chemistry and neurobiology to understand the molecular basis of fundamental brain processes. We apply the tools of organic synthesis, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, biophysics and neurobiology to manipulate and understand small molecules, proteins and molecular interactions critical for neuronal communication, development, learning and memory.
