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

Prof. Dr. Richmond Sarpong

Prof. Dr. Richmond Sarpong is a Professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He works on natural product synthesis to better understand biological systems and allow for the development of novel therapeutics.

He completed his undergraduate studies at Macalester College and he obtained his PhD in Organic Chemistry at the Princeton University where he worked on enediyne functional analogues. He conducted postdoctoral studies at Caltech with Prof. Brian Stoltz. In 2004 Prof. Dr. Sarpong started his independent scientific career at the University of California, Berkeley. The Sarpong laboratory specialise in the synthesis of bioactive organic molecules, with a focus on the natural products of flora and fauna. He has developed new synthesis strategies for alkaloids, a family of natural medicines that includes quinine. In particular, Sarpong is interested in natural product synthesis for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.’’
