Research Interest(s):
Synthetic Organic and Medicinal Chemistry

The research efforts in our group are directed toward the development of new reactions that will assist us in the synthesis of biologically important molecules. Our synthetic targets include compounds that are found in nature, as well as unnatural compounds, which display potential therapeutic properties. Some of the disease states that we emphasize are cancer, HIV, arthritic, and other autoimmune dieseases. Our projects fall into three main categories: 1) new organic reactions mediated by eco-friendly indium and bismuth reagents and catalysts, 2) development of new asymmetric catalysts, and 3) synthesis of biologically active molecules including anti-cancer and anti-alzheimers agents.
