Eloi Astier started his PhD on 2nd October 2017. He’ll work on the total synthesis, biomimetic synthetic strategies and medicinal chemistry of natural quinolones.

We welcome Tin V. T. Nguyen as an M1 student performing his experimental project in the lab.

Wei and Bastien attend SCS-Syngenta Symposium 2017 on Natural Products on Thursday, 5 October 2017, 08.30-17.00h. They will present two posters on natural product synthesis. Location: Syngenta Research Campus, Schaffhauserstrasse, 4332, Stein (AG)

Bastien attends the ChemBioScreen GDR meeting on 27th September, with a talk: At the crossroads of organic synthesis and natural history: a how and a why of natural product chemistry

Wei and Bastien talk tomorrow on natural product synthesis at the Thai-French workshop with other speakers:

Frémy and Darzens lectures – Thai-French Symposium with the excellent talks of Prof. Vichai Reutrakul Prof. Antoine Baceiredo Prof. Manat Pohmakotr Prof. Jérôme Lacour at Ecole Polytechnique, continuing tomorrow with a workshop.

Happy to spend time at UCL on Monday 11th September, talking on total synthesis: At the crossroads of organic chemistry and natural history: a how and a why of natural product synthesis and refereeing Arnaud Boreux’s PhD work

Oscar Gayraud started his PhD on 1st September 2017. He’ll work on the total synthesis of complex cytochalasins for three years at LSO, investigating bio-inspired transformations.
