Stellios Arseniyadis studied chemistry at Université Paris XI and moved to Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg were he did his PhD under the guidance of Dr Charles Mioskowski. In 2001, he joined Rhodia Chirex Inc. (Boston, USA) where he worked on various palladium- and copper-catalyzed aryl bond forming processes in collaboration with Prof. Stephen L. Buchwald (MIT). After a first postdoc with Prof. Alan C. Spivey at Imperial College (London, UK) working in the field of asymmetric organocatalysis, he joined Prof. K. C. Nicolaou’s group at The Scripps Research Institute (La Jolla, USA). There, he was involved in the synthesis of new epothilone B analogues and on the total synthesis of vannusal A. In 2005, he joined the CNRS as a permanent researcher in the group of Prof. Janine Cossy (ESPCI Paris, France) and was promoted to CNRS Director in 2015. The same year, he started hie own group at Queen Mary University of London where his research interests revolve around the development of new synthetic tools and their application to the total synthesis of biologically relevant natural products.
