Welcome to Dr. Negrete's Research Group


Dr. Negrete's laboratory is engaged in two research areas:

  1. the preparation of novel, amino-acid derived lipids for diverse applications including experimental antibiotics for human, animal, and plant diseases, and for imbuing lipid nanoparticles with desirable properties for drug delivery
  2. the synthesis of perylene dyes for biophotonic and photo-harvesting applications

While investigating these topics, Dr. Negrete and his research group are intensely interested in student training at all levels. The group's research and training activities are currently funded by the NSF S-STEM program and the USDA.
