Synthesis

Arthur C. Cope Scholar Awards: Dawei Ma

January 15, 2018 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 96, ISSUE 3

Sponsor: Arthur C. Cope Fund

Citation: For his outstanding accomplishments on ligand-promoted Cu-catalyzed arylation of nucleophiles and total synthesis of bioactive complex natural products.

Current position: research professor, Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Education: B.S., chemistry, Shandong University; Ph.D., chemistry, Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Ma on what he hopes to accomplish in the next decade: “I hope to discover more efficient catalytic systems to make some often used transformations in organic synthesis greener and more practical, and powerful approaches to make valuable complex organic molecules more conveniently available.”

What his colleagues say: “Dawei’s methods are some of the most often used reactions in modern drug discovery, and his work in alkaloid total synthesis is truly stunning.”—Phil Baran, Scripps Research Institute
