THE YOUNG LAB AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO
If you can smell what the Young Lab is cooking... Put it back in the fumehood!
Our research aims to understand the concepts and mechanisms which underly the complexities of science. We use advanced research techniques and technologies to explore and investigate the scientific hypotheses our Research Lab poses. Our research is generously supported by funding from the government and a number of foundations.

Congrats to Dr. Landge and the rest of the team for their work on using ligands to tame catalyst aggregation, enabling the first selective example of C–H activation and functionalization of a unprotected allylamines. We appreciate our collaborators from the Karunarathne lab on demonstrating the µ-opioid receptor activity of our compounds.
