Professor Scott E. Schaus

Professor Scott E. Schaus (Organic Chemistry) joined our faculty in Fall 2001. Scott received his B.A. in Chemistry, summa cum laude from Boston University in 1995 and a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry with Eric Jacobsen at Harvard University in 1999.

In the Jacobsen laboratory, Scott worked on the development of asymmetric catalytic reactions for the synthesis of complex natural products. As a postdoctoral student in Andrew Myers’ laboratory at Harvard University (1999-2001), in collaboration with the Center for Genomics Research at Harvard University, Scott utilized genome-wide transcriptional profiling to investigate the mechanism of drugs in living cells.
