Yuskuke Kasai, Visiting Scholar

Yusuke obtained his PhD degree at Tohoku University, Japan under the supervision of Prof. Nobuyuki Harada, working on the development of chiral derivertizing agents powerful for both enantioresolution and determination of the absolute configuration of alcohols.

His current research interest lies in the field of organic synthesis and chemical biology. Since joining the Gerwick laboratory as Visiting Scholar in July 2012, he has focused on the synthesis of marine natural product analogs to investigate the structure-activity relationship.
