Kenneth B. Wiberg Lecture: Masayuke Inoue, Professor, University of Tokyo

Event time: 
March 8, 2023 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Event description: 

Join Yale Chemistry for a Kenneth B. Wiberg Lecture with Masayuke Inoue, Professor, University of Tokyo.

The goal of the Inoue research program is efficient, practical and flexible syntheses of gigantic natural molecules, which include highly oxygenated polycyclic natural products as well as ion channel-forming peptides. At the core of this research program is the development of new strategies for assembling architecturally complex natural products in a concise fashion. These synthetic developments would enable unified synthesis of new artificial analogs by modification of natural products templates. The new synthetic methods for the natural products and the synthetic analogs will allow us to tailor and enhance their drug like properties, to gain control over diverse signal transductions thereby offering new research methods for the study of life science.
