Total Synthesis and Interfaces
Total synthesis constitutes the main core of Bastien's work. It is connected to the biological interface through bio-inspired methodologies, chemical biology, medicinal chemistry and natural history topics. We try to undertand the chemical origin of the diversity and complexity of natural products, and their underlying biological role with applied perspectives. Bastien takes part to teaching in the Master Molecular Chemistry, Science and Engineering. Bastien is a CNRS researcher ("directeur de recherche") and joined LSO in January 2017 after 12 years spent at the National Museum of Natural History.
It's time for PhD applications. Send an email to Bastien.
