Seongmin Lee
Research Interests

Dr. Lee's lab seeks to gain fundamental insights into molecular mechanisms for various DNA repair systems and epigenetic DNA modifications, with emphasis on discovering novel epigenetic chemotherapeutics, by using tools of nucleic acid chemistry, chemical biology, and X-ray crystallography. Current research interests can further be divided into base-excision DNA repair enzymes, DNA-modifying enzymes, and inhibitors of DNA-modifying enzymes.
