Patrick J. Farmer
Research Group - My research includes work on photochemistry and hybrid enzymes, electrochemistry and NOx catalysis, melanin/melanoma and metal-based drugs, and HNO/NO and hybrid enzymes.
Research Group - Projects in the Trakselis laboratory center on understanding the molecular mechanisms of DNA replication and repair and exploiting this knowledge for cancer therapeutics, biotechnology, and nanoscale applications. We utilize a model archaeal DNA replication system which shares significant homology to that of higher eukaryotes but is amenable to in vitro biochemistry experiments. This allows us to draw parallels between different domains of life using simpler replication systems.

Research Group - The Trawick Group focuses on the design and evaluation of new compounds as therapeutic agents through enzyme kinetics and assays, mammalian cell culture, molecular modeling and protein purification.
