Researcher interests: The unifying theme of our group is discovery and design of advanced molecular intermediates able to serve as common platforms for synthesis of various, structurally related (proceeding from same key subunit) compounds – potential therapeutic agents and drug candidates. Unlike existing classic synthetic “target-directed” methods, our constructing methodology offers conceptually new perspective, enabling to deliver multiple targets via sequence of controlled, simple and atom economy reactions from a single common molecular unit; thus, providing simplified access to a wide variety of important classes of biologically active and structurally interesting molecules.Building upon the foundations of synthetic organic chemistry, the research program of our group invokes a broad interdisciplinary collaboration with other fields such as, medicinal chemistry, organometallic chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology and medicine.
