Design, synthesis, and evaluation of biologically active molecules. Design and validation of assays to evaluate biologically active molecules and assays to study cellular processes. Developments of biological and chemical methods for carbon recycles. Organic synthesis.
Chemical Biology has recently emerged as an exciting new field that focuses on problems and processes at the interface of chemistry and biology. Chemistry uniquely provides essential tools and techniques to study biological systems at the molecular level. Appropriate small synthetic molecules are very useful in studying and manipulating biological processes. Dr. Siwarutt’s research areas include design, synthesis and evaluation of biologically active molecules; and design and validation of assays to evaluate biologically active molecules and to study cellular processes.
Our research has focused on developments of alternative chemical methods for rapid and efficient syntheses of compounds for therapeutic and material purposes. The robust synthetic protocols allow access to a large scale quantity of novel compounds. The synthetic compounds provide tools for physical and biological studies.
Developments of Chemical and Biological Methods for Carbon Recycles
Industrial wastes increasingly have become a financial burden for many production processes. We are investigating ways to recycle these wastes and make them become resources. Both biological and chemical methods offer potential protocols to recycle wastes.
