About us

Kurt Gothelf’s research is founded upon organic chemistry and branches out into DNA nanotechnology, bioconjugation, nucleic acid chemistry, medicinal chemistry and biosensors. 

Researchers from the Gothelf Lab have contributed significantly to the field of the so-called DNA origami method, where Gothelf and his collaborators were among the first to develop 3D nanostructures including a DNA box with a controllable lid.

Gothelf has also published a number of  high-impact papers about DNA origami, DNA-directed chemistry, biosensors, and self-organizing structures on surfaces.
