My research interests are focused on the design, synthesis, and optimization of small-molecule probes with particular emphasis on the developing antineoplastic agents that affect novel biological targets that provide a fundamental understanding of molecular mechanisms in signaling pathways important in cancer development. I am actively working on the development of proteolysis targeting chimera (PROTACs) agents for the induced degradation of different proteins responsible for cancer development and progression.
