Research

We do research at the intersection of supramolecular and medicinal chemistry. The first focus of our work is supramolecular; we design, make, and study molecules that ask basic questions about structure and binding in biological settings. We also collaborate closely with several biochemistry and cancer-research laboratories to translate these discoveries into practical advances in the treatment and understanding of disease.

Teaching

Fraser's teaching interests lie in organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, and biological chemistry. He is also actively engaged with undergraduates through supervision of research students in Chemistry 498/499 and participation in the Chemistry co-op program.
