Chemists seek to improve the world around them by inventing and manipulating molecules to solve exciting challenges. Research in the Roberts group seeks to mix and match cores of pharmaceutical molecules in order to improve their efficacy and invent new drugs. This can be accomplished through organometallic catalysis which is the synergy between metals and organic molecules.
