Davy Lin joined our team on 28th May for a two-month internship. He will work on natural product total synthesis under the supervision of Wei Zhang. Davy is a student from ENSCM at Montpellier.
We were glad to welcome Laurent on 21st February for a lecture entitled “A ring-distortion strategy from marine natural product ilimaquinone leads to quorum sensing modulators”. Laurent was the first PhD student Bastien supervised in the lab, from 2004 to 2007!
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.
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.
Benjamin Laroche received the YNSECT PhD Prize at the SCF Day of Ile-de-France Young Talents in Chemistry on 19th June 2017
Congratulations to Wei Zhang who got the SYNFACTS Posterprize at SFST7 (7th French Symposium on Total Synthesis), on 2nd June 2017, for her work on the total synthesis of functionalized diketopiperazines. Wei is a 2nd year PhD student.
Wei Zhang presented a poster at the Journée de Chimie Organique et de Chimie Organique Biologique de la Montagne Sainte Geneviève at Institut Curie, Paris. Her presentation was titled: Biomimetic oxidative strategies and alternative route for the synthesis natural products in the diketopiperazine series. She got a poster Prize for this presentation of her work!
