Curriculum Vitae


Savage Research Lab has two main areas of study: membrane active antibiotics and glycolipid immunology.
The Savage Lab has developed small-molecule mimics of antimicrobial peptides and is working to understand better mechanisms of antibacterial activity, optimize medical device coatings containing these mimics to prevent bacterial colonization, and optimizing compound structures for varied applications.
Savage researchers also work with immunostimulatory glycolipids and oligosaccharide vaccines.
