Andrew Roberts

Title: Assistant Professor
College: Science
School / Department: Chemistry
Mentoring Philosophy:
  • The Roberts laboratory will be open August 2017
  • Research in the Roberts laboratory is focused on the design and chemical synthesis of peptide-based therapeutics. Our chemistry draws inspiration from the unique structural elements and function present in ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides (RiPPs) and miniproteins. We are interested in the development of chemoselective methods for peptide ligation, macrocyclization, glycosylation and modification.
  • Additionally, we are interested in discovering catalysis methods for the cleavage and functionalization of carbon-nitrogen (C–N) bonds in small molecule and natural product synthesis efforts.
