Curriculum Vitae


Savage Research Lab

Our research is primarily in two areas.  We have developed small-molecule mimics of antimicrobial peptides, and we are working to understand better their mechanism of antibacterial activity, optimize medical device coatings containing these mimics to prevent bacterial colonization, and optimizing compound structures for varied applications.  We also work with immunostimulatory glycolipids and oligosaccharide vaccines.
