Biography

He is awarded PhD in chemistry and went on to become an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellow at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He holds a Master Degree (MSc) in Organic Chemistry from University Of paris, Paris in the 1989 followed by a Bachelor’s in organic chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2003 where he first developed an interest in organic synthesis and medicine. He has extended her valuable service as a Medicinal Chemistry Department at the University of Florida College of Pharmacy as an assistant professor.

Research Interest

The overarching goal of the Huigens lab is to push back the boundaries of drug discovery using new and innovative strategies to tackle unmet challenges associated with complex molecule synthesis, drug-resistant bacteria and cancer. Students and postdocs in our group receive training at the interface of chemistry and biology using a combination of synthetic organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, chemical biology and microbiology approaches. We currently have three major areas of research.
