We are developing robust capillary electrophoresis (CE) methods for the analysis for neurotransmitters/neuromodulators. Recently, we received a grant from the National Institute of Health to develop a sensitive CE fluorescence detection method for adenosine in biological samples. Our group is also involved in highly stereoselective synthesis of analogues of D-erythro-sphingosine and related ceramides, important lipid signaling molecules in a wide range of biological pathways. Prospective graduate students are encouraged to contact me directly if you have an interest in this type of research.
