Natural products often have densely functionalized fused-skeletons with fewer aromatic rings and increased numbers of stereogenic centers. The increased proportion of sp3-centers induces diverse undulations on the surfaces and thereby allows specific molecular recognition with the biological targets. Inspired by the biosynthetic strategy featuring modular assembly and divergent cyclizations of reactive intermediates, we are systematizing synthetic strategies to gain rapid, modular, and divergent access to skeletally diverse natural products and their variants. Harnessing the untapped potential of mid-sized synthetic molecules, Oguri laboratory is exploring frontiers of natural product chemistry with integration of chemical biology, supramolecular chemistry, and molecular technology.
Our laboratory was decided to receive research funding from the Asahi Glass Foundation
We won the Nagase Research Promotion Award from the Nagase Science and Technology Promotion Foundation and received research grants.
New 4th graders Yuta Arai, Daiki Kubota, Hikari Koi, Ryoko Komatsu and Nana Tsuchiya were assigned to the laboratory, and a welcome party was held. We also celebrated the scholarship adoption of Ryo Tanifuji(D1).
Kuniko Shimada joined as an assistant clerk.
Ryo Tanifuji was adopted as a special researcher of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (DC 1)! Let's expect the further success!
Takamitsu Honda and Sadaiwa Yorimoto（B4) received the Frontier Award of our department!
