Sulfur based redox signaling molecules such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), persulfides (RSSH), and polysulfides play regulatory roles in many physiological and pathophysiological processes. Our lab is interested in understanding their mechanism of actions. We are studying the chemistry and chemical biology of these sulfur species and developing novel chemical tools (donors, sensors, and scavengers) for these species. These chemicals may eventually become diagnostic or therapeutic agents.
