The Allemann laboratory studies the relationship between the structure and function of enzymes and develops and applies chemical tools to probe biological processes in vitro and in live cells. Our work relies on an interdisciplinary approach at the interface of chemistry, physical organic chemistry, biophysics, synthetic biology, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology and medicinal chemistry and involves a wide range of techniques. Based on an understanding of enzymatic catalysis and mechanism we develop tools that mimic Nature’s reagents. For more information, click on the 'Research' tab above.
