The Fehl Lab is passionate about developing chemical tools to unravel the complex mechanisms cells use to regulate their gene expression. We apply these tools to the diseased metabolic aspects of cancer, diabetes, and neurodegeneration, in particular by manipulating how cells use sugar levels as key signaling regulators.
Our key techniques include organic synthesis, biocatalysis, cell culture, proteomics, and bioinformatics to identify signaling pathways to reprogram pathological epigenetic pathways in disease.
