Organic research includes the invention of new reactions as well as investigations at the interface of organic chemistry with biology, medicine, materials science, and nanotechnology. Specific areas of interest include the development of new catalytic processes and methods for continuous flow synthesis, the design and synthesis of macromolecules, and the total synthesis of bioactive natural products.

Two graduate students talk about their research in a lab.
