Seth B. Herzon, professor of chemistry at Yale University, finds simple solutions to extremely complex problems in the field of natural product total synthesis. Among his achievements, the 34-year-old scholar has completed the total syntheses of lomaiviticin aglycon, in only 11 steps, and developed general strategies to access families of complex alkaloid natural products.

Herzon’s research spreads across multiple fields including synthesis, biosynthesis, chemical biology, and organometallic chemistry. His synthetic work on lomaiviticins, for instance, . . .
