photoNatural products — or more generally, genetically encoded small molecules — play a wide variety of roles in biology and have proved very useful in the development of small molecule therapeutic agents. Research in the Brady Lab centers on the discovery, biosynthesis and characterization of new, genetically encoded small molecules from microbial sources, with a special focus on those produced by uncultured soil bacteria and pathogenic bacteria.
