Find, synthesize and test new anti-malarial agents.


  1. The need for anti-malarials was found from a search for: a pressing need
  2. 220 target molecules provided by Find-a-Drug
  3. A collaborator for the in vitro testing was found
  4. A general solid support synthesis was found that should work for most of this library
  5. A much shorter and cheaper one pot solution synthesis was found
  6. A database of the compounds needed for the Ugi synthesis has been started here
  7. Labwork has started and is reported in the Experiments Blog
  8. Lab book summary page started.
  9. Anti-malarial activity for Ugi products reported (Jan 25, 2008)
