My research @ UIowa:
Peroxisomicines are complex natural products found within the fruit
Karwinskia humboldtiana. Those compounds are selective to
malignant tumor cells and are therefore suitable in particular for
the treatment of liver, lung and colon carcinomas. We are
performing their total stereoselective synthesis to study their
biological activity, toxicity and selectivity.
The University enrolls more than 30,000 students, has
1700 tenured and tenure-trackfaculty, more than 22,000
full-time equivalent employees.
