Welcome

Welcome to the Baxter Laboratory website! We are a research group in the Yale University Dept. of Chemistry. Using the techniques of biophysical chemistry, biochemistry and chemical biology, we are investigating the molecular mechanisms of immunity and fertility in insects. Our goal is to discover new pathways or targets that can be used for preventing transmission of vector-borne diseases, pest control or to illuminate the effects of environmental toxins and habitat disruption on beneficial insect populations.
