Health benefits of dietary polyphenols


I am an organic chemist working with colleagues to study the health benefits of phytochemicals, particularly polyphenols and organosulfur compounds derived from cruciferous vegetables.

Currently I am synthesizing polyphenol human metabolites, and 34-S-labelled derivatives. These are used in cell culture studies, and as mass spectral standards.
