There is an African proverb stating “If you want to go fast; go alone. If you want to go far; go together.” We aim to go far using the collaborative research environment in our group. To this end, new synthetic technologies developed in our group are transferred to the NIH-funded Chemical Methods and Library Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh; a Center armed with scientists and equipment adept at carrying out syntheses of libraries of compounds. My group works closely with the scientists in the Center to ensure the success of our chemistry. The compound libraries that result from this collaboration are uploaded into the Pubchem database and made available to the public (non-profit) for biological screening. Follow-up studies on three series of compounds resulting from our synthetic methods, have coupled our group to biologists, pharmacologists, and dermatologists around the country. Moreover, we have also obtained a better understanding of the transition metal catalyzed and thermal carbon-carbon bond forming reactions performed in our labs as a result of collaborations with computational scientists.
