Wilfred A. van der Donk

Summary

Wilfred van der Donk's research group uses chemical tools and principles to gain insights into biological processes, with an emphasis on the biosynthesis of natural products and the use of enzymes for synthetic purposes. The goal of the laboratory is to utilize understanding of these pathways, both to discover new biologically active compounds and to alter their structures to improve their potential utility for human health.
