Professor Laszlo Kurti Joins Chemistry Faculty

The Chemistry Department is pleased to announce that on July 1, 2015 we will be joined by our newest faculty member, Laszlo Kurti. Professor Kurti is coming to us from the UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas where he has served as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Biochemistry since Fall 2010.  Professor Kurti’s research focus is synthetic organic chemistry, more specifically the synthesis of bioactive molecules, natural product synthesis, biomedical applications and the development of novel organic transformations. We are very excited to have him bring another layer of depth to our Organic faculty, and look forward to his contributions to the Department, to Rice and to the field of chemistry.
