Prof. Seeberger is a renowned expert in the glycosciences and continuous chemistry. Using synthetic carbohydrates as tools he is interested in elucidating the role of glycans in biological processes of medical relevance and their use novel materials. Continuous chemistry is a transformative technology to quickly and reliable prepare complex molecules for example as drug substances
