Lect. dr. Mihaela Matache received her Ph.D from University of Bucharest in 2009, as a result of the collaboration between the University of Bucharest, Department of Chemistry under the supervision of Prof. dr. Ion Baciu and Technical University of Munich, Department of Chemistry within Marie Curie Excellece Team, under the supervision of Dr. Niculina D. Hădade, in the laboratory of Dr. Daniel P. Funeriu in the field of organic synthesis of nitrogen-containing compounds and construction of metal-ion directed supramolecular protein arrays. During a postdoctoral stage in 2010 at the Technical University of Munich, she also gained experience in synthesis of activity-based probes for various enzyme classes, using Solid-Phase Peptide Synthesis. She is currently a lecturer at the University of Bucharest, Department of Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Catalysis and her current research interests are in multi-step organic synthesis of various heterocycles or other building blocks useful in supramolecular chemistry, biochemistry and constitutional dynamic chemistry.
Lect. dr. Codruța Paraschivescu received her Ph.D in the field of organic chemistry, from the University of Bucharest in 2011, under the supervision of Prof. dr. Ion Baciu. The PhD thesis focused on the synthesis of new 2,5-disubstituted 1,3,4-oxadiazoles as well as the synthesis of an affinity probe for the estrogen receptor. Dr. Codruța Paraschivescu is currently a lecturer at the University of Bucharest, Department of Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Catalysis and her current research interests are in organic synthesis of various heterocycles and other types of compounds with applications in medicinal and material chemistry.
Asist. drd. Anca Păun graduated Facuty of Chemistry, University of Bucharest, specialization Chemistry in French în as well as she is MSc in Chimie Organique-Physique since 2001. During her master studies, she performed a research internship att the University of Caen, Centre d’Etudes et de Recherche sur le Medicament de Normandie – CERMN, in laboratory of Prof. Rault, under supervision of Prof. Valerie Collot. The approached research topic was study and synthesis of new indazole derivatives, using Sonogashira cross-coupling reaction. Currently, she is a PhD student under supervision of Prof. Vasile Pârvulescu and she works in the organic chemistry laboratory in the Faculty of Chemistry. The PhD thesis focuses on the organic synthesis of new heteroaromatic compounds, representing an extension of the experience achieved during the master. Thus, the research subject aims synthesis of new heterocyclic compounds using tioorganic electrophilic alternative coupling partners in the Sonogashira reaction. During her PhD she has also performed two research internships at the University of Orleans, L’Institut de Chimie Organique et Aanalitique – ICOA, within Prof. Guillaumet group, who has a vast expertise in the design, synthesis and analysis of bioactive compounds through metal-catalysed cross-coupling reactions. Currently, Anca Paun is an assistant professor at the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Catalysis, Faculty of Chemistry and she is about to finalize the PhD studies..
Miss Anca G. Coman received her Bachelor’s degree (2013) and MSc (2015) from the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Bucharest. The BSc thesis was performed under the supervision of Lect. dr. Mihaela Matache and Lect. dr. Codruţa Paraschivescu. The dissertation thesis was also performed under the supervision of Conf. dr. Ileana Farcasanu, Lect. dr. Mihaela Matache and Lect. dr. Codruţa Paraschivescu in the Department of Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Catalysis, the research subject being the synthesis of activity-based probes for cysteine proteases, using Solid-Phase Peptide Synthesis. Currently, she
is a PhD student at the University of Bucharest, Faculty of Chemistry, Department of Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Catalysis, under the supervision of Conf. Dr. Petre Ioniţă and her thesis topic focuses on the synthesis and characterisation of new profluorecent heterocyclic compounds.
Miss Mihaela Mocanu (born in 1989) is a PhD student at Faculty of Chemistry, University of Bucharest. She is working in the group of Acad. Marius Andruh, under his supervision. Her research topic is based on design and synthesis of new multifunctional coordination compounds.
Cătălin Anghel received his B.Sc. degree from University of Bucharest in 2015, under the supervision of Acad. Marius Andruh and Lect. Dr. Mihaela Matache in the field of organic chemistry with applications in coordination chemistry, by synthesis of 1,3,4-oxadiazole based ligands. He is currently working for his M.Sc. degree under the same supervision.
