Kirschstein Postdoctoral Fellow. In 2012, Tom began his independent career in the department of chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests include the development of novel chemical methods in the rapid synthesis of  complex natural products, with a focus on diversifiable approaches to compounds of relevance to human health.

 

 

Professor M. Kevin Brown,
Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, USA

M. Kevin Brown earned his Ph.D. in 2008 from Boston College in the group of Professor Amir Hoveyda, before moving on to postdoctoral research at Harvard University with Professor E.J. Corey as a Ruth L. Kirschstein Postdoctoral Fellow. In 2011, Kevin began his  independent career in the department of chemistry at Indiana University, Bloomington. His research interests include the development of new methods and strategies for organic synthesis, with a focus on [2+2] cycloaddition chemistry, Cu-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions, and stereoselective cross-coupling reactions realized by Pd/Cu synergistic catalysis.



The Novartis Early Career Award in Organic Chemistry is given annually to outstanding scientists within 10 years of having established an independent academic research career in the areas of organic or bioorganic chemistry in the broadest sense. Two awardees are identified each year from the global research community, each of whom receives an unrestricted research grant.
