Catalysis  –  Heterocycles  –  Medicines  –  Materials  –  Education


Innovation in chemical synthesis and catalysis is the central theme of the Hansen research group. We are particularly interested in constructing molecules of importance for the global improvement of human health, society, welfare and industries. Current work is centered on computational and experimental investigations on generating bioactive heterocycles, host-guest technologies as well as lead-oriented synthesis of small-molecule medicinal compound libraries for addressing a range of health challenges.
