Research Activity

Research in the Tucker group is focused primarily on the design and study of functional supramolecular and DNA-based systems, which often contain redox-active or photo-active sub-units. Students and postdocs receive training in a variety of techniques, including molecular synthesis, DNA synthesis, fluorescence spectroscopy and electrochemistry.
