Professional Interests

Dr. Curley's primary research interests lie in the area of the medicinal chemistry and biochemistry of important vitamin A metabolites with potential to function as cancer chemopreventive agents. A secondary interest involves developing strategies for the synthesis of stable isotope-labelled molecules to facilitate NMR structural studies of drug-receptor interactions and of receptor proteins themselves.
