The Hansen Laboratory at UiT

Catalysis  –  Heterocycles  –  Medicinal Chemistry  –  Materials

Innovation in chemical synthesis and catalysis are central themes of the Hansen research group. We are particularly interested in constructing molecules of importance for improving human health, society and welfare. Current work is centered on novel strategies for generating bioactive heterocycles, host-guest chemistry as well as diversity-oriented synthesis of small-molecule medicinal compound libraries for addressing a range of health challenges.
