Welcome to the Walczak Group
chemical tools and strategies to drive
new discoveries in the life sciences
We are developing tools that enable the synthesis and selective modifications of (oligo)saccharides with minimal synthetic effort and in high selectivities. These studies utilize catalytic processes compatible with a broad selection of functional groups and classes of substrates.
