Welcome to the Schärer laboratory at the Department of Pharmacological Sciences and Chemistry at Stony Brook University. We are located on the sixth floor of the chemistry graduate building, 0.5 miles from the Stony Brook train station and roughly 50 miles (80km) east of New York City on Long Island.
Research in our group is focused on the mechanisms by which the genomes of our cells are damaged and repaired and on how these processes relate to carcinogenesis and anti-tumor therapy. Our work makes use of a wide variety of approaches including organic chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular and cellular biology.
We invite you to explore our home page to learn more about our research and meet the members of the group.
