Kirschning Group

Research group Prof. Dr. Andreas Kirschning

Our research group provides a home for synthetic chemistry in a broad sense. We utilize and combine chemistry, biotechnology and synthetic enabling technologies for drug-oriented natural product research and the development of smart biomedical materials.

RESEARCH AREAS OF THE KIRSCHNING GROUP

The ability to design and synthesize new molecules, and to explore their molecular architectures, is a tool of enormous power that has facilitated the development of many areas within the field of molecular science. Research in the Kirschning group aims to strategically combine a diverse range of these synthetic approaches, including biotechnological methods based on enzymes and whole cells; enabling technologies such as flow chemistry and inductive heating in organic synthesis; and the total synthesis of complex organic molecules, to initiate biomedical studies of new molecules and materials with promising therapeutic potential.
