Lecturer, Chemistry, Winter Session Instructor
Dr. Bellevue’s doctoral research included included the synthesis of steroid-based antibiotics derived from molecules originally identified in sharks, as well as steroid-based antifungal agents. His postdoctoral research included the synthesis of antiparasitic compounds and investigation into cytochrome p450 inhibitors. Dr. Bellevue has done research with numerous students on their Senior Project, and with students in the Bridges to the Baccalaureate Summer Research program most recently focusing on natural products as sources of antifungal agents.
