M. Mahmun Hossain, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
Dr. Hossain’s group is interested to develop novel organic reactions that will simplify the synthesis of existing biologically active compounds and also enable the generation of a new class of therapeutics for human diseases. Currently, his group is focused on developing a new and concise synthetic procedure for tryptophan-based anti-cancer microtubule inhibitors tryprostatin A and B and their analogs. In addition, his group is involved in developing new oxindole and benzofuran-based analgesic drugs.
