Biosketch and Research Interests

Carson performed his undergraduate education at the College of Charleston and performed research under the direction of Justin Wyatt and Marcello Forconi where he worked on developing novel, bis-indenyl ligands for transition metal catalysis and chemically modifying proteins with fluorine NMR probes, respectively. After graduating in 2015, Carson went on to work for Mitochem Therapeutics, Inc. as a research associate under the direction of Craig Beeson and Christopher Lindsey where he worked on synthesizing small molecules for the treatment of retinitis pigmentosa.

Carson joined the Lindsley lab as a graduate student in 2017 and is currently focused on the further development of mGluR7 PAMs.
