DNA Damage, Base Pair Mismatch
The three major research projects in the Suo laboratory are: 1) using pre-steady state kinetic techniques (rapid chemical quench flow and stopped flow) and single molecule methods to elucidate kinetic mechanisms for DNA polymerases, kinases, and proteases; 2) develop small molecules to inhibit hepatitis C infections; and 3) investigate the efficacy and toxicity of antiviral and anticancer nucleoside analogs.
