Catalysis and Peptide Research Unit

Our group was established in January 2007.  The projects are a cauldron of interests from each PI.

Thavi Govender - Asymmetric catalysis, peptide chemistry and mass spectrometry

Gert Kruger - Polycyclic cage chemistry, NMR structure elucidation and computational chemistry

Glenn Maguire - Cavitand chemistry and crystallography

Fernando Albericio - Peptide chemistry and molecular pharmacology

Per Arvidsson - Chemical biology and asymmetric synthesis (see also homepage)

Tricia Naicker - Asymmetric catalysis and NMR spectroscopy

Beatriz G. de la Torre - Peptide chemistry and method development 

Bahareh Honarparvar - Computational Chemistry

Sooraj Baijnath - Pharmacology and mass spectrometry


 

Congratulations to Kim on being awarded her Masters degree suma cum laude.
