Science of Synthesis 20th Anniversary Virtual Symposium in Honor of Prof. Barry Trost
Science of Synthesis, a unique reference work covering synthetic methodology in the field of organic and organometallic chemistry, celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2020. To mark this occasion, and the remarkable career in organic synthesis of one of its founding editors, Prof. Barry M. Trost (Stanford University, USA), Thieme Chemistry is holding a virtual Web symposium with some of Professor Trosts' alumni.
The symposium will be moderated by Prof. Gary A. Molander (University of Pennsylvania, USA) and Science of Synthesis Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Alois Fürstner (MPI Mülheim, Germany). The speakers on this occasion will be: Prof. Janine Cossy (ESPCI Paris, France), Prof. Mark Lautens (University of Toronto, Canada), and Prof. Nuno Maulide (University of Vienna, Austria). The alumni talks will be 3 x 25 minutes in length. Prof. Barry Trost will give a 30-minute talk on "Chemistry and Biology: Merging Sciences?". There will be Q&A sessions.

Event registration is FREE to all. This event will be recorded.

Professor Janine Cossy
Professor of Organic Chemistry @ESPCI Paris, France
Janine Cossy was born in Reims, France, where she completed her undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Champagne-Ardenne, working on photochemistry under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Pierre Pète. After a two-year postdoctoral stay with Prof. Barry Trost at the University of Wisconsin (USA), she returned to Reims, where she became Director of Research at the CNRS in 1990. In the same year, she was appointed Professor of Organic Chemistry at the ESPCI Paris. Janine Cossy’s research interests include the synthesis of natural products and biologically active molecules and the development of synthetic methods. Her research has resulted in more than 530 publications and 17 patents. She has received the CNRS Silver Medal (1996), the E.C. Taylor Senior Award (2015), and the IUPAC Distinguished Women in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering Award (2019). In 2013, she was nominated Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur and she was elected to the French Academy of sciences in 2017.
Professor Mark Lautens
J. Bryan Jones Distinguished Professor, AstraZeneca Professor of Organic Synthesis @University of Toronto, Canada
Mark Lautens (B.Sc. Guelph, Ph.D. Wisconsin-Madison, PDF Harvard) is AstraZeneca Professor of Organic Synthesis, J.B. Jones Distinguished Professor and University Professor at the University of Toronto. His research involves discovering new synthetically useful reactions and developing strategies to make medicinal agents more efficiently. Among his honors are: Officer of the Order of Canada, Doctor of Science, honoris causa, Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Henry Marshall Tory Award, CIC Medal, E.W.R. Steacie Fellow, and J.J. Berry Smith Doctoral Supervision Award. International recognitions include Humboldt Award (Germany), Pedler Award (RSC, UK), A.P. Sloan Fellow, Lilly Grantee, A.C. Cope Scholar and H.C. Brown Award (ACS). Nearly 200 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows and an equal number of undergraduates have trained with him. Lautens has written OpEd’s in the Globe & Mail and Toronto Star advocating for supporting excellence in science and early career researchers.
Professor Nuno Maulide
Full Professor and Chair of Organic Synthesis @University of Vienna, Austria
Nuno Maulide was born in Lisbon in 1979. He graduated from the Instituto Superior Tecnico, completed an M.Sc. at the Ecole Polytechnique, and received his Ph.D. from Universite catholique de Louvain in 2007. After postdoctoral studies with Barry Trost at Stanford University, he became a Research Group Leader at the MPI Mülheim in 2009. Since 2013 he is Full Professor and Chair of Organic Synthesis at the University of Vienna. His research spans diverse areas within organic chemistry, focusing on unconventional reaction mechanisms and intermediates. Maulide was “Scientist of the Year” 2018-19 in Austria and is the youngest Corresponding Member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. He has received the Bayer Early Excellence in Science Award (2012), the ADUC prize (German Chemical Society, 2012), the EurJOC Young Researcher Award (2015), the Elisabeth Lutz Prize (Austrian Academy of Sciences, 2016), the Prize of the City of Vienna (2017) and the Tetrahedron Young Investigator Award (2020).
