The Lipidomics Synthesis Unit is dedicated to the synthesis of sphingolipids and analogs. This laboratory is fully equipped with two hoods for organic chemical synthesis. A separate room for radioactive synthesis set up with a special hood equipped with and a Bioscan TLC plate reader. The synthesis unit also has access to the NMR Facility at MUSC as well as a fully equipped tissue culture room and dedicated office space.
Synthetic development and compound classification are based on the recognition of key sphingolipid enzymes.
