Welcome to the Romesberg Lab of Chemical Biology and Biophysics
Located in the Department of Chemistry at The Scripps Research Institute, we combine the tools of chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, and modern spectroscopy in efforts to understand evolution, expand its potential by developing unnatural base pairs, and also apply our understanding of evolution to develop novel antibiotics and improve human health.
Our recent publication in mBio won't take long to read, but if you have only a minute, head to the TSRI News Release instead
Congratulations to Floyd and Denis, recipients of the 2015 Nobel Laureate Signature Award for Graduate Education in Chemistry!
