Dr. Dale LeCaptain
Analytical chemistry is the key to understanding the world we live in. The application of spectroscopy, separations, and sensors is my approach to understanding our environment, supporting the innovative chemical research both biochemical and materials happening around us, and a key tool to training our next generation of successful scientist (STEM).
Dr. Ajit Sharma
My laboratory (in collaboration with Dr. Swanson) is involved in the synthesis and characterization of dendrimers for biomedical applications using various bio-conjugation methodologies, RP-HPLC, SEC-HPLC, MS, IEF and PAGE. We are currently collaborating with faculty and researchers in the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department, Biology Department, Medical School (CMED) and in Europe on the application of dendrimers and their derivatives in oxidative stress, neurodegenerative diseases and vaccines.
