Room: N 25
Ian Seiple, PhD, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, UCSF, San Francisco, CA

Ian received his doctorate at The Scripps Research Institute under the tutelage of Prof. Phil Baran where he worked on the synthesis of complex marine alkaloids. He conducted postdoctoral studies with Andy Myers at Harvard, where he developed a platform for the synthesis of novel macrolide antibiotics. He started his independent career at UCSF in 2015. His group focuses, broadly, on the application of chemical synthesis to biological and medical challenges. A main focus of his program is the development of new methodologies to access structurally novel antibiotics.
