Research in the Garner lab focuses on the development of new enabling chemistries and the synthesis of biologically active molecules. In this context, our intellectual activities may be viewed as architecture (design and construction) on the molecular scale. Chemical synthesis (the discipline associated with building molecular structures) is the common element that underlies all of our research endeavors.

Current research projects include the development of new methodology for the convergent synthesis and site-specific modification of proteins as well as the application of the asymmetric [C+NC+CC] coupling reaction to biologically active pyrrolidine-containing targets.
