Meet the NPDG

The Natural Products Discovery Group is part of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oklahoma. We are comprised of students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers with diverse expertise in chemistry, natural products, biology, and microbiology. In addition, we are proud to have strong collaborative relationships with researchers in the Institute for Natural Products Applications and Research Technologies (INPART), as well as outside of the University of Oklahoma. We routinely work with experts in the fields of mycology, medicinal chemistry, cancer pharmacology, and microbiology.
