FasanRudi Fasan

Rudi Fasan studied Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Padua (Italy) and received his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from the University of Zurich with Prof. John Robinson in 2005. After a postdoctoral experience with Prof. Frances Arnold at the California Institute of Technology (2005-08), he joined the Department of Chemistry of the University of Rochester in Rochester (New York), where he currently holds a position of Associate Professor. His research group is interested in the design, engineering, and application of metalloprotein catalysts for the asymmetric construction of carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds and stereoselective synthesis. Current interests include the development of P450-based chemoenzymatic strategies for late-stage C-H functionalization in organic molecules and complex natural products and the design and engineering of biocatalysts based on myoglobin and other metalloprotein scaffolds for catalyzing nitrene and carbene transfer reactions.
