About the Author
DENNIS G. HALL received his PhD from Université de Sherbrooke in 1995 and is now University Professor of Chemistry at the University of Alberta, Canada. The unifying theme of his research program is the development of new synthetic and biological applications of organoboronic acid derivatives, with topics including stereocontrolled reaction methodology, catalysis, multicomponent reactions, and chemical biology.
HUGO LACHANCE received his PhD from the University of Alberta in 2006 under the supervision of Prof. Dennis Hall. He is now Scientific Coordinator at Pharmaqam and Adjunct Professor at Université du Québec à Montréal. His research interests include asymmetric methodology, bioactive natural products, biological target identification, and protein labeling.
Scott E. Denmark received his undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1975 and his graduate degree (D.Sc. Tech.) from the ETH-Zürich in 1980. He joined the faculty at Illinois in the same year. His research interests are in structural, synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry.
