Join Our Team


Our research is focused on to explore the new catalytic functions of nature’s catalysts called “enzymes” and their applications to promote Green and sustainable Chemistry.  This includes investigations of their role in biosynthetic pathways, development of biochemical assays, designing and execution of chemoenzymatic routes for complex natural products and their use in chemical syntheses. The field of biocatalysis has a huge potential in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry and we certainly believe that possibilities to explore new enzyme and their catalytic functions are infinite. We encourage people from chemical sciences and biotechnology to join our team to learn techniques across disciplines.
