Research in organic chemistry at Emory addresses a broad array of fundamental problems, including investigations at the frontiers of organic synthesis, medicinal chemistry, bioorganic chemistry and materials science. Specific research areas include the discovery of new reactions including the invention of new methods for asymmetric catalysis, the development of novel strategies for the total synthesis of a wide array of bioactive natural products, the design of new organometallic reagents and catalysts, and the development of potent new medicinal agents.

Research is carried out in a dynamic environment that includes collaborations with researchers in the School of Medicine and the Emerson Center for Scientific Computation to further our understanding of molecular reactivity in organic, organometallic, and biological systems.
