Research in the Du Bois Laboratory spans a broad arc of discovery science – from catalyst and reagent design, mechanistic physical organic chemistry, natural product synthesis, and molecular and cellular biology.  All research projects are connected to long range programmatic goals in chemical synthesis and ion channel chemical biology.  Members of the lab are given the intellectual freedom to develop their own ideas and are encouraged to forge collaborative partnerships within and external to the Department of Chemistry.  The physical proximity of our lab to the Stanford School of Medicine greatly facilitates our close interactions with both research and clinical labs interested in neurobiology and neurophysiology.
