Our research team consists of a mixture of graduate students, undergraduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.  The expertise of our team members includes analytical chemistry, synthetic chemistry, cell biology and biomedical engineering.  While we love science, we also enjoy having fun together outside of the lab – as seen in the various pictures below! Contact Dr. Tumey if you are interested in joining our lab!
