This is the Daley Group page devoted to all things in and around the Daley Group. Please feel free to peruse the site and use the links on the left to get around quickly. We have a lot of information on this page so hopefully you will
find what you are looking for. However, if you think we missed something, please let us know by sending an email to the webmaster
If you are a current student at USD and you are looking to join the Daley Group as an undergraduate researcher, please visit our Research and Daley Group links on the left for more information about the projects and people in the lab. After viewing these, if you think you may be interested in joining the Daley Group, please fill out the undergraduate research application and contact Dr. Daley to set up an appointment to meet, discuss the research you are interested in, and to discuss openings in the group. Currently the Daley Group is actively looking for new members!!
The Daley Group makes its home in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department which is housed in the Shiley Science and Technology Center at the University of San Diego. Our group is currently interested in two broad areas of study: Bioinorganic chemistry and organometallic chemistry. In the bioinorganic area, we examine the structure and function relation of the active-site in monometallic enzymes, such as nitrile hydratase, using the synthetic analogue approach. Our organometallic research currently focuses on the development of new chiral ligands for use in metal-mediated enantioselective catalysis.
