The Tekle-Smith Lab is a new research group starting in the Columbia Chemistry Department in July 2022.
The Tekle-Smith group is interested in studying fundamental physical organic chemistry principles in the field of asymmetric synthesis. The goals of this program are to create enantiopure substances, harness the reactivity of unconventional chiral motifs, and grow the fundamental understanding of chiral structural effects. Research will be applied to pharmaceutical development, materials design, and sustainable synthetic method development.
