About Gustavo Moura-Letts

My background is in synthetic organic chemistry with an emphasis in method development and library synthesis. My research group is focused on developing novel methods for the synthesis of biologically relevant molecular scaffolds. Our central hypothesis is to develop novel synthetic methods to access biologically relevant molecular scaffolds. Thus, I have a number of projects dedicated to the synthesis of small molecule libraries with a diverse array of biological properties and to the discovery of novel reaction pathways for the synthesis of complex molecular scaffolds.

Projects:
Novel Methods for the Synthesis of Small Heterocycles, Synthesis of Pharmacologically Relevant Molecular Scaffolds, Photoredox Catalysis for Mixture Synthesis, Isolation and Characterization of Natural Products from Peruvian Medicinal Plants, Polyisoxazoles as Ovarian Cancer Therapeutics, Complex Hydrizides as HIV-1 Integrase Inhibitors, Novel Alkaloid-like Scaffolds as Highly Potent Analgesics Without side Effects.
