Thomas J. Meade Eileen M. Foell Professor of Cancer Research, Chemistry, Molecular Biosciences, Neurobiology, Biomedical Engineering, Radiology

Research Interests

The Meade Lab research focuses on inorganic coordination chemistry for the study of molecular imaging of in vivo gene expression and intracellular messengers, transition metal enzyme inhibitors, and electronic biosensors. The design, synthesis and physical properties of transition metal and lanthanide coordination complexes are the foundation of our research.
