Alan Obled

I am an organic chemist with research interests in the modification of natural products. Specifically, my research focuses on natural products with medicinal properties. As a CRITICAT CDT student, my projects involve conducting catalytic reactions, using homogenous catalysis and biocatalysis in order to obtain analogues of the target natural products, and then screening their bioactivities, particularly antibiotic properties against a variety of bacteria. My research endeavours on harnessing the power of Biosynthesis to produce complex and bio-active metabolites possessing orthogonal reactive handles that can then be diversified using the flexibility of Chemistry.
