Toshiyuki Kan Research Group
The major research efforts of our group are directed toward total synthesis of biologically active natural products and probing mechanism of its mode of action. Our target compounds possessed biologically activities, which are expected as a lead for drug development. In order to achieve total syntheses, we have also extensively investigated new synthetic methodologies. Additionally, we have been interested in the synthetic methodology for prove molecules which are essential for chemical biology. Our target natural product, probe molecules and synthetic methodologies described in below.
