Welcome to DeVita Research Group!
The DeVita lab is focused on drug discovery to meet the needs of patients for whom there are limited therapeutic options. Medicinal chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry and chemical biology are the main drivers of our research program with an aim to discover and develop novel small molecule therapeutics for patients with unmet medical needs. We are working in close collaborations with eminent physicians and scientists across wide variety of therapeutic areas at Mount Sinai. We work as collaborative, multidisciplinary teams to identify novel drug targets, develop chemical and biochemical tools to understand them, ultimately for translational research to develop novel, efficacious first-in-class drug candidates.
