Medicinal and synthetic chemistry at McMaster University

The Magolan Laboratory is a research team at McMaster University with expertise in organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry.  We pursue a wide range of research projects in the areas of 1) drug discovery and 2) synthetic methodology development. We often partner with other labs to tackle challenging interdisciplinary projects with the goal of discovering new medicines to meet critical challenges in human health.  With our colleagues in the Michael G. Degroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research (IIDR), we are trying to develop the next generation of antibiotic therapies to address the threat of antimicrobial resistance.  

Are you an aspiring grad student with a lot of undergraduate organic synthesis experience and good grades, or a postdoctoral applicant with an exceptional record of organic synthesis accomplishments?  If so, then perhaps our lab should be your lab.
