Welcome to Kodanko Laboratory


Research in the Kodanko laboratory is at the interface of organic, inorganic and medicinal chemistry. We are interested in harnessing the power of metal complexes for biological applications. Projects currently being conducted in the Kodanko laboratory span across many subdisciplines of chemistry research including organic and inorganic synthesis, catalysis, kinetic and mechanistic studies, coordination chemistry, enzyme inhibition and cell biology. Recent interests have focused on the development of light-activated compounds for biological research applications, and as potential therapeutics.
