Topic: The talk will discuss real-life examples from the pharmaceutical industry of synthesis challenges and strategies to solve them. The specific reactions were selected from current and historic drug discovery projects at H. Lundbeck A/S in 2003-2018 and covers a broad range of transformation ranging from heterocycle assembly over cross-couplings to stereoselective organocatalysis and enzymatic resolutions. The presentation will show the nature of the 'first assignment' a new organic chemist will be given when joining the company.
