Our lives depend on organic molecules

We're great at designing them
We're often terrible at making them

The Lam Lab at UVic aspires to change this 

Selective Catalysis,
Radical Chemistry, Total

We are interested in developing, and translating, catalytic strategies to selectively functionalize ubiquitous functional groups such as alcohols and amines.​


We are motivated by current deficiencies in organic synthesis and are especially interested in developing selective variants of “bread-and-butter” reactions.

Help turn our vision into a reality

We are looking for driven and socially-minded scientists to join the Lam Lab.
