326 Chemistry

The Shaw group focuses on the development of new reactions and the stereoselective synthesis of natural products and other biologically active molecules. We recently developed a novel four component reaction (4CR) that is being applied to the assembly of several complex polycyclic alkaloids and transcription factor inhibitors. We are also synthesizing several natural products that target bacteria resistant to current antibiotics.
