Cortland logoThe Hicks lab is located in the renovated wing of Bowers Hall in the Department of Chemistry at SUNY Cortland.

The goal of our lab is the study of bacterial enzymes involved in interesting chemical transformations using a structure-function approach.  The unusual chemistry found in bacterial pathways offers us the opportunity to probe novel mechanisms.  This research is performed using a combination of biochemical assays and protein X-ray crystallography.
