Welcome to the Peptide Therapeutic Laboratory (Tiwari Lab). We are in the School of Pharmacy at Chapman University. The laboratory, run by principal investigator Dr. Rakesh Tiwari. Our laboratory is located on the second floor of the Harry and Diane Rinker Health Science Campus (9501, Jeronimo Road) Building. We acknowledge the generous support from Chapman University School of Pharmacy.

Our expertise is in the area of developing small molecules and peptides for therapeutic application. We are interested in developing peptide-drug conjugates (PDC) for various application. Research areas range from the development of new synthetic methods for small molecule and peptide synthesis including a preclinical screening of compounds.
