Who's speaking?



Welcome to the SpiroWebinars.

Our concept: a group of passionate chemists gathers for an hour-long experience - a journey into the future of chemistry and discovery.

In this SpiroWebinars Autumn Series (Pushing Boundaries), we will be covering a topic that keeps us all awake at night: how to construct better molecules with better properties?

Next Speaker

Dr. Quentin Lefebvre, PhD

Dr. Quentin Lefebvre, obtained his Master degree in physical sciences and chemistry in 2011 at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France) as ‘élève normalien’, performing research internships in Berlin (Germany) and Cambridge (UK). He then moved to the RWTH Aachen University (Germany) for doctoral studies under the supervision of Prof. M. Rueping and graduated in 2015. His research focussed on methodology development in synthetic organic chemistry, with a highlight on fluorine chemistry, photoredox catalysis and flow (photo)chemistry.

After a one-year postdoctoral stay in the same group, he joined the group of Prof. J. Clayden in Bristol (UK) for two years, working on the synthesis and conformational analysis of medicinally relevant medium-sized rings. He published 20 peer-reviewed scientific articles and joined SpiroChem in Basel (Switzerland) in 2018 as a Research Chemist, to develop and promote enabling technologies.
