As an organic chemist, Grenning’s research is focused on chemical synthesis and drug discovery. “My goal is to advance the field of organic chemistry through research, education, and outreach. I have broad research interests in enantioselective strategy, physical organic principles as applied to synthetic method development, and synergizing natural products – and pharmaceutical – research in unique ways,” he says about his research. His group’s current projects are centered around identifying “hidden driving forces” for enantioselective sigmatropic rearrangements and axially chiral natural products.
