Virtual Lecture Series:
Frontiers in Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry

Amping Up Organic Synthesis with Electrochemistry 

Prof. Song Lin
Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology
Cornell University
Ithaca, NY

Pharmaron’s Virtual Lecture Series provides online educational training for our team and partners during the COVID-19 pandemic. World-class scientists from renowned academic institutions present their latest novel research on topics related to synthetic and medicinal chemistry.

In this lecture, Professor Song Lin will detail his lab’s design principle underpinning the development of new electrochemical transformations with a focus on applications in the synthesis of medicinally relevant compounds. In addition, this talk will discuss a parallel effort in the development of new electrochemical high throughput reactors that can drastically improve the efficiency of reaction discovery and optimization. 

About Prof. Song Lin:

Prof Song Lin grew up in Tianjin, China.  After obtaining his B.Sc. degree from Peking University in 2008, Song embarked his graduate studies at Harvard University working with Prof. Eric Jacobsen. He then carried out postdoctoral studies with Prof Chris Chang at UC Berkeley. In 2016, Song started his independent career at Cornell University, where he is currently an Associate Professor. Song has received several early career awards, including Sloan Fellowship, National Fresenius Award, Cottrell Scholar Award, Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, NSF CAREER Award, and MIT Technology Review Innovators Under 35. He is currently an Associate Editor at Organic Letters and has served on the Early Career Advisory Board of ACS Catalysis and Chemistry-A European Journal. The Lin Laboratory’s research lies at the interface between electrochemistry and organic chemistry.  The main objective is to use fundamental principles of electrochemistry and radical chemistry to discover new organic transformations and uncover new reaction mechanisms.
