  Research program of Professor Harutyunyan’s group is aimed at the development of novel catalysis concepts for the asymmetric synthesis of chiral functional molecules. In 2011 her group introduced an entirely new role for Cu (I)-based catalysts, facilitating highly enantioselective carbon-carbon bond forming reactions between organometallics and enolisable carbonyl as well as imine compounds. Following this initial discovery, they established Cu(I)-catalysis, in combination with Lewis acids/Grignard reagent, as a powerful tool to tackle the reactivity of inherently unreactive substrates for carbon-carbon bond forming reactions. In this lecture brilliant scientist will focus on how we can use these concepts to access highly demanded and valuable chiral heteroarenes and amides, as well as tertiary alcohols and amines, in catalytic and enantioselective fashion and mechanistic studies.

Let's straighten our shoulders and smile broadly! The head of the Department of Therapeutic Dentistry knows the latest approaches to treating patients

Zurab Khabadze, Head of the Department of Therapeutic Dentistry at RUDN University, improved his qualifications with Dr. Lorenzo Vanini. It was Lorenzo Vanini who founded the anatomical stratification method and created the ENAMEL Plus HRi dental material system. The topic of the course is “Stratification and osteopathic approach to patients”.
