应功能有机分子化学国家重点实验室邀请，美国芝加哥大学Scott A. Snyder教授来我校进行交流并做学术报告，欢迎感兴趣的师生参加。
报 告 人：Professor Scott A. Snyder
报告题目：Strategies and Tactics for the Rapid Synthesis of Molecular Complexity
Prof. Snyder pursued his undergraduate studies at Williams College in Williamstown, MA, and in 1999 began his graduate studies with Professor K. C. Nicolaou at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA. In 2004, he was trained as a NIH postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Prof. E. J. Corey at Harvard University. He began his independent career in 2006 at Columbia University and then moved to The Scripps Research Institute (Jupiter, FL) in 2013, where he was promoted as an Associate Professor with tenure. In September of 2015, he was recruited by the University of Chicago as a Full Professor.
His research interests are devoted to the synthesis of complex natural products as well as the development of new reagents that have enabled access to a diverse array of halogenated molecules. Prof. Snyder is the recipient of numerous awards and honors including the Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award from the ACS (2011), an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship (2010), and the NSF CAREER Award (2009). In addition to excellent research, he is also a recognized educator, having co-authored several widely-used textbooks, such as “Classics in Total Synthesis II (Wiley)”and “Organic Chemistry （11th and 12th Editions, Wiley）”.
