About Reuben J. Peters

Research in the Peters laboratory is focused on the large class of diterpenoid natural products, largely those falling within the labdane-related superfamily. Bioactivity of these ~7,000 known compounds ranges from the gibberellic acid (GA) hormones ubiquitously found in higher/flowering plants to natural antibiotics, and includes compounds of pharmaceutical and industrial relevance.
