Our research group’s first independent paper is published currently in Nature Communications! Link
Impressive job by Chunfa for the superb effort spearheading strain-release glycosylations using ultra-low loadings of thiourea.

We are a young and dynamic research group situated at the Technical University of Dortmund. The strategic focus of our group is to achieve creative solutions to key questions in chemical biology by utilizing modern catalytic tools specifically in sugar chemistry. As such, we aim to expound the modern arsenal of transition metals and organocatalysis in accessing novel carbohydrate and carbohydrate mimetics. By integration and collaboration of the research group with experts in phenotypic screens and chemical proteomics at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology, our junior research group aims to spearhead cross disciplinary research at the interface of modern catalysis and chemical biology to answer fundamental questions in oncology.

We are always seeking for enthusiastic organic chemists seeking to further their doctoral studies or their post-doctoral research in an exciting and challenging environment. We highly value scientists who show exceptional aptitude for out-of-the-box thinking and aspiring to revolutionize modern synthetic methodologies with a chemical biology outlook. If you are interested in embarking on this adventurous research endeavour with us, feel free to contact Dr. Charles Loh (chuanjie@post.tu-dortmund.de) for more information.
