Organic Chemistry Seminar Series: William Lubell (Université de Montréal)
April 11, 2022 | 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm
About the Speaker:
Professor in the department of chemistry at the Université de Montréal, William Lubell is actively investigating solution-phase and solid-phase synthesis of heterocycles, amino acids, peptides, peptide mimics, and the preparation of their libraries by combinatorial science. His interests lie both in developing a new methodology for effectively synthesizing these novel structures for drug discovery, as well as in their use to explore protein folding, molecular recognition, and bioorganic catalysis.
