Dr Sabine CHOPPIN, Senior Lecturer (ECPM)

Sabine Choppin obtained her PhD degree in 2001 from the University Henri Poincaré (Nancy, France), for studies in the field of polar organometallic chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Yves Fort. After a post-doctoral stay at the University of Louvain La Neuve (Belgium) with Prof. Olivier Riant, working in the field of asymmetric catalysis, she took up a position as an Assistant Professor in 2002 by Prof. Francoise Colobert at the University of Strasbourg (France). Her scientific interests include the development of new asymmetric methodologies, particularly the synthesis of biologically active compounds.
