Dr. Guigen Li has received a four year award from NIH for the project “GAP Chemistry Approaches to Chiral Amino Acids, Peptides and Peptidomimetics” in the amount $ 1,060,111.

Dr Guigen Li is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Professor Li is interested in the development of new achiral and chiral reagents, new reactions, their asymmetric versions and applications. He is also interested in bioorganic and medicinal chemistry, especially, in the study of new analgesic and anti-inflammatory agents, peptide and peptidomimetic drug design, synthesis and structure-activity-relationship (SAR) studies that are important for treating diseases, such as AIDS, cancer and diabetes. Gap chemistry, which stands for Group-Assistant-Purification chemistry is an approach  that combine economic, environmental and green aspects to  enable organic synthesis without traditional purification procedures.

Congratulations Dr. Li from your colleagues in Arts and Sciences.
