ORGANIC CHEMISTS FOCUSED ON CARBOHYDRATE SYNTHESIS

Miller Research Group - About Us

MILLER RESEARCH GROUP

We are a group of organic chemists focused on carbohydrate synthesis. We are interested in making tools for glycobiology, new glyco-based biomaterials and carbohydrates in medicinal chemistry.

MILLER RESEARCH GROUP

We are a group of organic chemists focused on carbohydrate synthesis. We are interested in making tools for glycobiology, new glyco-based biomaterials and carbohydrates in medicinal chemistry.

The group’s research is focused around the chemical and chemoenzymatic synthesis of carbohydrates. This is undertaken to create new probes for chemical glycobiology and for the application of non-native carbohydrate structures in medicinal chemistry.

We are also interested in the growing requirement of carbohydrates as biomaterials, especially from the perspective of accessing materials to understand polysaccharide structure-function relationships.
