Welcome to Fang Research Group website at Michigan Technological University.
We are synthetic organic chemists. Our research interest ranges from synthetic methodology, organometallics, mechanochemistry, single-molecule chemistry, nucleic acid chemistry, peptide chemistry, to epigenetics and chemical biology.
Students and postdocs in our group have the opportunity to learn a wide range of skills. The most important one is organic synthesis. Others, which have been playing an important role for the career success of our students and postdocs, include phosphoramidite chemistry, peptide chemistry, solid phase synthesis, automated DNA and peptide syntheses, enzymatic reactions, reversed-phase and ion-exchange HPLC, polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, capillary electrophoresis, NMR, ESI-MS, MALDI-MS and GC-MS.
