Killing Cancer with Light

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a strategy for treating cancer, where a nontoxic prodrug, the photosensitizer (PS), is activated by light to form…

Photochemistry and Photophysics

A key element in designing photosensitizers is the ability to predict the molecular structures that will trap the energy of photons and…

Synthesis

Our laboratory maintains a significant synthetic capacity; we design and build the ligands, and then assemble them into the metal complexes that…
