Natural products continue to be unique lead compounds for 21st century biomedical research. Our research program has been heavily invested in developing new catalytic reactions and strategies to access not only the parent natural products, but also leveraging these approaches to improve pharmacological properties of related compounds through precision synthesis. This lecture will provide an overview of our recent successes in this area and highlight current ongoing programs.
