Link to additional information about the Chemical Biology Lab

The Chemical Biology Laboratory (CBL) was established in 2009 as a multidisciplinary laboratory that emphasizes chemical science at the at the interfaces of chemistry, biology and materials science. The CBL conducts basic research central to the discovery of new small molecules, peptides, macromolecules, arrays and materials that impact cancer and AIDS diagnostics and treatment. The CBL evolved from the Laboratory of Medicinal Chemistry (LMC), a lab that had served as the focal point of chemical research within the NCI, historically steeped in the discovery and optimization of anticancer and anti-AIDS drugs. The Chemical Biology Lab was formed to expand the role of chemistry and materials science in defining and manipulating the biological processes that impact cancer and AIDS with the ultimate goal of translating basic research discoveries into therapies. We are a diverse group of synthetic organic chemists, chemical biologists, materials chemists, analytical chemists, and computational chemists that interact closely to create a collaborative and stimulating research environment. The CBL collaborates extensively with other NCI and broader NIH laboratories as well as academicians to accelerate discovery and translation. The CBL houses state of the art facilities to support chemical biology and materials development including newly constructed organic synthesis laboratories, mass spectrometers, NMR spectrometers, peptide synthesizers, glycan array technologies, rheometer, dynamic mechanical analyzer, CD, UV and FT-IR spectrometers, and a Linux supercomputer cluster.

Bioorganic Chemistry

A postdoctoral position is available in the Bioorganic Chemistry Section of the Chemical Biology Laboratory, NCI-Frederick under the mentorship of Dr. Terrence Burke. Research will involve developing small molecule inhibitors of HIV integrase and RNase H. The Fellowship has an initial duration of two years, with the potential to extend a third year. Salary and benefit package are highly competitive. The CBL is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation and is located on the campus of the National Cancer Institute at Frederick, Frederick, MD. Inquiries should be directed to burkete@nih.gov.
