profil 3.jpg Guillaume Vincent was born in 1978 in Lyon, France. He graduated in 2002 from the Ecole Supérieure de Chimie Physique et Electronique de Lyon (CPE Lyon). During this period he spent one year at the Dupont Pharmaceuticals Company in Wilmingtion (USA) working with Dr. Patrick Y. S. Lam on the copper catalyzed cross-coupling between boronic acids and NH containing substrates. In 2002, he also obtained his M. Sc. degree from Université Lyon I in the group of Prof. Marco A. Ciufolini. He completed his PhD in 2005 under the supervision of Prof. Ciufolini during which he achieved the synthesis of the macrocycle of soraphen A. He then joined in (2005-2006Prof. Robert M. Williams at Colorado State University as a postdoctoral associate during which he completed the total synthesis of cribrostatin IV. At the beginning of 2007 he returned to France in the group of Prof. Max Malacria and Prof. Louis Fensterbank at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie - Paris 6 to study anionic-radical tandem reactions. Finally at the end of 2007 he was appointed “Chargé de Recherche” by the CNRS at the Institut de Chimie Moléculaire et des Matériaux d’Orsay of Université Paris Sud working on nitroso Diels-Alder cycloadditions and the total synthesis of natural products. He launched in 2011 an independent research program towards the synthetic applications and understanding of unusual reactivities of the indole nucleus. He obtained in 2018 the Advanced Researcher prize (J.-M. Lehn prize) from the Organic Chemistry Division of the French Chemical Society (SCF). He was promoted Direceteur de Recherche CNRS on October 2019.
