Our Research Mission

Our research program may be divided into three broad areas. All incorporate a significant component of synthetic chemistry. Our core strength in synthesis enables us to contribute to problems at a number of important frontiers. The diversity of research projects within the group provides a stimulating learning environment that imparts students with an understanding of the central role of synthetic chemistry in contemporary science.
