Research Focus

The research interests of the laboratory for Organic Synthesis is developing new strategies and methods for the total synthesis of complex compounds, chemistry of natural products (total synthesis and analogues) and biology oriented synthesis.

• Total synthesis of complex natural products and analogs/derivatives thereof
• Cycloadditions, pericyclic reactions and multiple bond forming reactions
• Structure-activity relationships: How does the structure of a molecule affect its function or reactivity?
• Development of small molecule-based probes as tools in biology
Perspectives are the further development of the synthesis of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 analogues for use in cancer treatment, for autoimmune and neurological therapeutics and development of novel strategies for the construction of chemical libraries via combinatorial chemistry.
