John Braun MSc. graduated in 2014 from Leiden University where he studied Organic Chemistry and worked on the design and synthesis of C-3 substituted castanospermine analogues in the quest towards better glycosidase inhibitors in the treatment of lysosomal storage disorders, specifically Gaucher’s disease.

In the Synthetic- & Bio-organic Chemistry group (Prof. Orru), he is now developing efficient novel synthetic procedures en route to the enantioselective synthesis of complex natural compounds using a combination of biocatalysis, organocatalysis and multicomponent chemistry.
