The Donahue Research Group is focused on the investigation of new reactions for the formation of carbon-nitrogen bonds to construct complex molecular structures.

The overarching goal of our research program is to investigate and utilize new organic reactions for the creation of carbon-nitrogen bonds. Since nitrogen is an important element in many pharmaceutical drugs, we are interested in synthesizing complex motifs typically found in naturally occurring molecules.
