Christopher Parker (The Scripps Research Institute)

Christopher Parker is Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Scripps Research Institute. His team seeks to develop chemistry-enabled strategies to investigate human biology and disease pathology by integrating organic synthesis with chemical proteomics and cell/molecular biology. His primary objective is not only to better understand protein function and corresponding disease roles, but also to create chemical tools and technologies that might facilitate the development of new therapeutics.
