Research Domain:natural products total synthesis, synthetic methods development, and the design and application of new transition metal catalyzed reactions Country:[CN]
Research Production: Our research group is involved in natural products total synthesis, synthetic methods development, and the design and application of new transition metal catalyzed reactions. The details of some ongoing research research projects are given below. Please see our publications page for details of this work.

Synthetic Approaches to the Eunicellin Diterpenes
The eunicellin diterpenes are a large family of biologically active natural products which have in common a bicyclo[8.4.0]tetradecane ring system, but which differ in stereochemistry and in the degree and pattern of oxidation. Eleutherobin, for example, has been found to have potent anti-cancer activity against a variety of tumor cell lines. It stabilizes microtubules and thus suppresses cell division, a mechanism of action it shares with taxol. Sclerophytin-A exhibits cytotoxicity at 1 ng/ml in the L1210 leukemia cell line. Astrogorgin inhibits cell division in fertilized starfish eggs. Other eunicellin diterpenes such as massileunicellin-I have not been assayed for biological activity. We have embarked on a long term study directed toward the synthesis of several members of the eunicellin diterpene family. The goal is to develop strategies and methods that will result in general and flexible approaches to these targets as well as to simplified analogs. We are exploring two general approaches to the eunicellin diterpenes: the Ireland-Claisen rearrangement and the cycloaldol reaction.

We are exploring two general approaches to the eunicellin diterpenes: the Ireland-Claisen rearrangement and the cycloaldol reaction.

Most of the eunicellin diterpenes possess a hydroisobenzofuran core with a bridging oxonane ring at C2 and C9. We have found that a novel cycloaldol reaction enables the rapid assembly of the isobenzofuran bicycle with excellent diastereoselectivity. An initial intermolecular aldol reaction between (S)-carvone and methacrolein establishes the desired stereochemistry at C1, C2 and C14. Etherification and cycloaldolization affords the isobenzofuran. The C9 stereocenter is formed with complete diastereoselectivity. Thus four of the stereocenters present in the natural products can be installed in only 3 steps from (S)-carvone. We are employing the cycloaldol reaction in the synthesis of the highly oxidized massileunicellins as well as simplified bicyclic analogs for use in high throughput synthesis.

Research Production: The National Institute of Biological Sciences, Beijing (NIBS, Beijing) was established to advance the frontier of basic research in the life sciences in China. Founded in 2003 as part of a strategic government initiative to further national development of science and technology, NIBS aims to become a first rate, internationally competitive research institution. Its faculty will educate future generations of life scientists and explore a new model for operating scientific institutions in China.

The major components of NIBS are its research laboratories and core facilities. The Principal Investigators (PIs) are selected from a highly competitive international applicant pool. Upon invitation by the NIBS Director, a Selection Committee evaluates the applicants and recommends candidates for appointment, and the Director makes the final decision. A PI shall serve for 5 years and the reappointment is contingent upon academic evaluations by the SAB and the Director’s evaluation of the PI’s research and contribution to the future development of NIBS. Heads of the core facility will be appointed by the Director.

NIBS is backed by the full support of the Chinese leadership. The Board of Trustees (BOT) is responsible for institute policy and consists of representatives from eight agencies, including the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Ministry of Health (MOH), the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NNSFC), and the Beijing Municipal Government. MOST and the Beijing Municipal Government are primarily responsible for overseeing the operation of NIBS and provide the major sources of funding. The term for each BOT member is 3 years and its members may be reappointed.

The Director is responsible for the daily operations of NIBS under the leadership of the BOT. The BOT shall further select well-known scientists to serve on a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB is consulted on issues related to PI appointment and research development. Its mission is also to select and advise the Director and provide support as needed to the BOT. The initial term of appointment to the SAB is three years, and its members may be reappointed.

The appointment of Director of NIBS is made following a rigorous international search process. After the BOT issues a call for applications, the SAB evaluates submissions and makes recommendations to the BOT, which makes the final offer. The Director shall be a well-established, internationally known scientist with distinguished research achievements in the life sciences. The Director shall serve 5 years and may be re-appointed. In April 2003, the BOT accepted the recommendation of the SAB and appointed Dr. Xiaodong Wang, a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and a biochemist and cell biologist from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and Dr. Xingwang Deng, a plant biologist from Yale University, as Co-Directors of NIBS.
