The scientific activity is directed towards the development of:
- stereoselective synthetic and biocatalytic methods for the preparation of biologically active molecules
- new bioactive compounds using natural products scaffold and their analogues derived from cultivated marine organisms
- new organic materials that exhibit chiral self-assembly and investigation of the structure-property relation
Many years of experience in the field of organic synthesis and enantioseparation form the basis for a large number of past and current collaborations with the academic community and industry partners.
The CATBIO has an active and friendly research environment. Full time equivalent research students are undertaking graduate program at the doctoral level. In addition, we offer undergraduate students a first-hand opportunity to engage in our research projects in their final year.
