Environmental Health Sciences


Organic Chemistry of Nucleosides and Nucleotides


Research involves invention of mechanism-based inhibitors of enzymes vital to cancer cell and/or virus proliferation, and collaborative biochemical evaluation. Another area focuses on new fluorination, radical desulfonylation, and Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling methodologies. Dr. Wnuk’s research group is also interested in the design and synthesis of 18F labeled nucleoside-based probes for Positron Emission Tomography Imaging.
