  • Design and synthesis of various inhibitors of sphingolipid metabolizing enzymes.
  • Design and synthesis of organelle-targeted Cers and inhibitors of sphingolipid metabolizing enzymes.
  • Design and synthesis of molecular tools for metabolic studies: radiolabeled, fluorescent, and 17C sphingolipids (containing an unnatural 17C-sphingoid backbone).
  • Design and synthesis of molecular tools for determination of enzymatic activities.
