Dr. Anna Pla Quintana is visiting Prof. Jared T. Shaw laboratories at UCDavis (California) (https://shaw.faculty.ucdavis.edu/) during a sabbatical term (September-December 2019) funded by a “Estancias de profesores e investigadores sénior en centros extranjeros” grant from the Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades. She will be involved in a project aimed to the synthesis of anticancer drugs using Rh-catalyzed carbene C-H insertion reactions. The mechanism of the transformation developed will also be studied theoretically in collaboration with Prof. Dean Tantillo (UCDavis) (http://blueline.ucdavis.edu/). We wish Anna a great time in UCDavis!
