The overarching theme of our research program is target-oriented chemical synthesis. We seek to develop new synthetic tools that enable efficient, streamlined approaches to challenging molecular architectures. Synthetic targets that are currently under investigation include anti-cancer natural products, nucleic acid modifications for RNA-based therapeutic applications, and strained macrocyclic hydrocarbon segments of carbon nanotubes (CNTs).
