14th International Conference on the Chemistry of Antibiotics and other Bioactive Compounds, 13-16 October 2015, Texas, USA


Brian Bachmann, Vanderbilt University, USA

Brian BachmanProfessor Bachmann is Principal Investigator of the Laboratory for Biosynthetic Studies, a multidisciplinary group working on the construction and deconstruction of biosynthetic pathways. The broad goals of this group are to investigate how natural product biosynthetic enzymes evolve and to understand the design rules for their concatenation into efficient “total syntheses” of natural products. Can we apply these rules and direct the evolution of these pathways into new biosynthetic pathways of our own design? The impacts of this work include providing new avenues for drug discovery by combinatorial biosynthesis and “green” cost-effective ways of producing high-value products and intermediates for pharmaceutical and life sciences.
