Sylvie Robin obtained her Ph.D in 1992, from the University of Paris-Sud, in Orsay with Professor F. Huet, working on optically active lactone synthesis. She spent a postdoctoral year at Oxford University with Professor L. M. Harwood, studying cycloadditions with chiral azomethines. Coming back in France, she obtained a teaching position at the Faculty of Pharmacology (Univ. Paris V). In 1995, she joined Dr. G. Rousseau's theme at the University of Paris-Sud, where she studied the reactivity of electrophilic reagents. Since 2009, in Pr. D. J. Aitken’s group, she turned her interest in the synthesis of conformationally restricted GABA and to the folding behavior of their homo-oligomers and hetero-β,γ-oligomers. Keywords: amino acids, peptide synthesis, photochemistry, cyclisation, chiral resolution.
