Choi Group

Research Interests:

Dr. Sunhee Choi is currently interested in studying the chemistry of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Her work is focused on understanding the mechanistic roles of what seems to be the three major components of an AD brain: Amyloid beta peptides, transition metal ions (Fe3+, Cu2+, and Zn2+), and sugars. These are elucidated through studies of molecular structure and reaction kinetics.
