Neal K. Devaraj, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Bioengineering
University of California at San Diego
Dr. Devaraj's research focuses on chemical biology with an emphasis on developing bioorthogonal reactions for addressing questions in synthetic biology and molecular imaging. Current research interests are in triggering selective reactions for applications in biomimetic chemistry, challenging conventional notions of where and how chemical reactions are performed. The overall goal is to create and utilize chemical techniques that mimic the exquisite control of biology in achieving functionality.
