The Roy Lab is exploiting the nematode worm C. elegans to identify new small molecule tools for animal research and drug development.  Projects in the Roy Lab include the development of compounds to kill parasitic nematodes that infect over 2 billion humans, as well as those nematode parasites that result in billions of dollars of lost productivity in agriculture.  En route towards the development of new drug leads, the Roy Lab works to better understand how animals protect themselves against exogenous small molecules.
