ABOUT ROCHE RESEARCH GROUP

Highly Trained and Effective Chemists

Innovation Inspired from Natural Products’ Architectures

 

Our research group focuses on the total synthesis of selected “small” or compact natural products with architecturally complex frameworks. Targets are selected on the basis of novel molecular architecture (terpenes, alkaloids, peptide and petidomimetics) that confer molecules with important biological activity. We enjoy putting our minds together to deliver innovative research that adhere to the highest standards of today's research.

ROCHE RESEARCH GROUP IN THE MEDIA

Extra, Extra!

Our Research Group has been growing over the years, with several projects and collaborations that have emerged  to achieve some enantioselective total syntheses of complex natural product targets and develop new chemical methods for peptides and peptoids. We’d love for you to take a look!  Check also our publications for yourself, to learn more.

The group went to the conference FloHet 2018

Congrats to all for the poster presentation and talk !

CONGRATS

Shyam !

After finishing Second Place in the summer research competition for the Parkanyi scholarship award, 2014, Shyam Samanta won the 1st prize ($1,500) at the GPSA research day poster competition 2016.

 

UNDERGRADUATE IN THE NEWS

Aya Tal-mason, our undergraduate student, has been featured in an article by the Associated Press, in the Washington Post! Read it here! ​

Charles Shearer, our Undergrad Superstar  recently presented his research at the FURC 2018. Check out Charles' talk from the SURF program 2017!

CONGRATS to the Group !

Shyam's project was selected this year by the Pharma Eli Lilly for a synthesis of small molecules (amino esters) through the Automated Synthesis Laboratory (ASL).

Furthermore, our project on non-proteinogenic amino esters has been funded by the NIH-NIGMS

November 2017

 

CONGRATS: Shyam and Tom

 

Congratulations to Shyam Samanta to have been awarded with an FAU GRIP-Grant 2015 for an excellent research project on  non-proteinogenic α-amino acids synthesis. Also we want to congratulate Thomas Kempton; Tom was awarded with a Undergraduate-research grant this summer to work with Shyam on fluorescent amino acid as probe for protein folding.
