Professor Karl Barry Sharpless, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, visited Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) on Sept 16.

Sharpless was invited by Lin Guoqiang, dean of the university's innovative research institute of TCM, to discuss their joint research project which explores the use of click chemistry in the development of TCM.

At a seminar, Sharpless, along with Zhang Jiange, a researcher at the TCM institute, and He Xisong, a researcher from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, introduced a number of academic reports.

They summarized the breakthroughs that their research team has made in combining TCM research with click chemistry and probed solutions to current problems.

Sharpless is now conducting click chemistry research at the Scripps Research Institute in the United States. He visited Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine for the first time in April 2018 and expressed interest in working together.

Since then, Sharpless and a research team led by Lin have made remarkable progress in their research.
