Congratulation to Dr.  Wei Wang, whose proposal  "Practical Synthesis of Deuterated Building Blocks and Biologically Important Structures" has been funded by the NIH.   The complexity of deuteration chemistry and limited number of expensive deuterated building blocks available hamper researcher access to bioactive deuterated molecules.  Professor Wang and his group will develop a series of  new organic reactions by harnessing new reactivities and developing catalytic systems to prepare versatile deuterated building blocks and ‘privileged’ structures.  These building blocks will then facilitate the construction of deuterated molecules of interest for their biological studies and drug discovery.
