Molecular Prosthetics

Molecular prosthetics are small molecules that can replace missing proteins. These molecules can be used to treat diseases caused by protein deficiencies like anemia, cystic fibrosis and heart disease.

Featured Faculty

Martin Burke

Professor Marty Burke and his research group focus on the synthesis and study of small molecules.

Sepsis Research

By using blood samples and vital sign data from electronic medical records, a team of Illinois researchers was able to identify five key biomarkers to predict sepsis in patients. The biomarker measurements were found to be as predictive as monitoring a patient’s vital signs for hours, time that is crucial for treatment.
