The Chan Lab’s research lies at the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine. Our expertise in molecular imaging and organic synthesis enables us to develop novel chemical tools and approaches for the discovery and understanding of new biological phenomena. More specifically, the lab is interested in researching the development of small-molecule and protein-based sensors for non-invasive molecular imaging, the preparation of new diagnostics and therapeutics for infectious diseases, and synthetic organic chemistry.
