Jacek Krzeminski, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Pharmacology
Scientific Program:Mechanisms of Carcinogenesis

Research Interests

The ongoing projects in Dr. Jacek Krzeminski's laboratory are closely related to research on several aspects of chemical carcinogenesis as well as chemoprevention and drug discovery.

The lab is involved in structure elucidation and syntheses in the areas of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), nitro-PAHs, nitrosoamines and their metabolites.

Among Dr. Krzeminski's interests are also structurally modified/ adducted oligonucleotides and nucleoside analogues of potential anticancer activity. Other projects include structure-based design approaches to the optimization of leads/small molecules for drug-like properties introduction.
