Antoine Abou Fayad

I am a highly motivated BioOrganic Medicinal Chemist with research interests in the synthesis,
biosynthesis and biosynthetic manipulation of natural products. Through my MSc I have developed skills in organic synthesis and I have extended these skills in biochemistry further through my PhD. I have a deep interest in the medical research field especially in the discovery and isolation of antibiotics. I am interested in how biosynthetic pathways may be harnessed in order to create natural products of my own design with improved biological. Combining synthetic chemistry and biosynthesis provides expeditious access to series of otherwise synthetically intractable natural product analogues. These libraries may be used to gain a greater understanding of the drug’s structure activity relationships.
