Research interests in the Khosla Laboratory lie at the interface of chemistry and medicine. For the past several years, the lab has investigated the catalytic mechanisms of modular megasynthases such as polyketides synthases, with the concomitant of harnessing their programmable chemistry for preparing new antibiotics. More recently, the group has investigated the pathogenesis of celiac sprue, an HLA-DQ2 associated autoimmune disease of the small intestine.
