Our research program focuses on the development of new catalytic and non-catalytic methods of preparing potentially bioactive boron and gallium compounds.  Our team has had the privilege of working with many talented undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and research associates.  Students receive proficient training in inorganic, organic, and organometallic chemistry as well as in a variety of experimental methods.  Collaborations have been established whereby students spend time with other research groups gaining further experience with a number of different techniques.  We have published 147 papers with 158 different undergraduate authors as of September 2018 and helped send 103 students to graduate school.  We are able to provide students with high-caliber research and training that enable them to advance their careers and become useful contributors to the future of Canadian science, medicine, and technology.
