Author Biography

Francoise Colobert is director of the chemistry department of the Chemistry engineering High School ECPM at the University of Strasbourg. She received a Ph.D. in organic chemistry in 1985 from the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France) working with Prof. Jean-Pierre Genet. After a post-doctoral position in the group of Prof. Jules Hoffman in molecular biology, Francoise Colobert became an assistant professor in the group of Prof. Guy Solladie (University Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg) and obtained her habilitation (HDR) in 1999. She was appointed full professor of organic chemistry in 2001. Her current research interests are oriented towards homogeneous catalysis, in particular C-H activation directed by sulfoxides, C-C asymmetric biaryl coupling by Suzuki-Miyaura and aryne couplings or by C-H activation; the synthesis of new biaryl ligands for asymmetric catalysis and the total synthesis of biologically active molecules. Joanna Wencel-Delord was educated in chemistry at the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Chimie de Rennes, France and she received her PhD in 2010 from the University of Rennes 1, France (Dr. C. Crevisy and Dr. M. Mauduit). After postdoctoral studies with Prof. F. Glorius at the Westfalische Wilhelms-Universitat Munster (Germany) and temporary assistant professor position (ATER) at the University of Strasbourg (Prof. P. Compain), she joined in 2013 CNRS as associate researcher in the group of Prof. F. Colobert (University of Strasbourg, France). Her research focuses on the transition metal-catalyzed asymmetric C-H activation.
