Organic chemistry

Our group is interested in the development of new and/or simpler ways to make biologically interesting and structurally challenging natural products. We have recently completed total syntheses of (-)-cryptosporiopsin (anti-fungal and anti-biotic), epi-resiwigin A, calicogorgin A and C, and manzamine C (anti-malarial, antibiotic, anti-cancer). Current naturally occurring compounds being targeted include (-)-reiswigin A (anti-herpes) and manzamines A and B (anti-cancer and anti-malarial).
