Howard S. Bunn Professor of Chemistry
Office: Seeley G. Mudd Bldg.
Medicinal chemistry; drug design and development in the areas of anti-vessication agents, vasopressin antagonists, dermatologicals, and cholinesterase inhibitors.
As you might expect, I teach courses in the area of my research expertise. These include a graduate course in synthesis, one in heterocyclic compounds, another in medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, and a "gateway" course on organic reaction mechanisms.
