Associate Professor (Inamori Frontier Program)
Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Synthetic Organic Chemistry
Our reaction development research focuses on catalytic activation and radical reactions, and we have developed unique synthetic methodologies using amino acids and carboxylic acids. Based on our synthetic methodologies, we are engaged in developing meddle-sized peptides and deuterated molecules, aiming to create highly functional molecules.
MessageWe aim to develop original synthetic methods with new functions and properties for molecules that have never existed. Cutting-edge technologies and knowledge from diverse research fields are vital for discovering promising molecules, especially in drug research. To facilitate this, we will promote cross-disciplinary research collaborations.
