Dr. Anup Kumar has been awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation fellowship

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Anup Mandal has been awarded a highly prestigious Humboldt Research Fellowship by the Alexander von HumboldtFoundation to conduct an independent research project in the Bunescu Lab at the Kekulé Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Dr. Mandal's project will focus on the first-row transition-metal-catalyzed dearomative difunctionalization of arenes to reach molecular complexity.
