Huw Davies

Huw M. L. Davies (Asa Griggs Candler Professor, Emory University) is the Director of the NSF Center In Selective C–H Functionalization (NSF-CCHF). His research program is highly collaborative and emphasizes the development of new enantioselective synthetic methods. His program covers design of chiral catalysts, development of new synthetic methodology, total synthesis of biologically active natural products, and development of chiral therapeutic agents. A major current theme in his group is catalytic asymmetric C–H functionalization by means of rhodium-carbenoid induced C–H insertion.
