Organic Synthesis and Medicinal Chemistry

The research group consists of three full time professors, post docs and 20-25 students that are working for a MSc or PhD degree. The group has an international profile with members from several countries in addition to Norway; consequently, English is the working language in the lab.
The research has for many years been focused on development of synthetic methodology.  Among a number of areas investigated in the past are cyclopropane chemistry, flow chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, metal catalysis, metathesis, peptide synthesis and synthesis of peptidomimetic scaffolds, photochemistry, process optimization, and more recently, synthesis of natural products or mimics.
