Graduate Program on Chemistry of Natural Products
INTRO
Our program encompasses the research endeavors focused on the application and development of chemical tools for the study of natural products and their roles in biology and medicine. In this context, our efforts tackle fundamental aspects of chemistry related to natural products and other bioactive substances as well.

The graduate program was founded in 1964, being among the five oldest programs at the Federal University (UFRJ). It was a pioneering research program in Brazil and the first one focused on chemistry of natural products. In its early years, our program counted on the support by professor Carl Djerassi, of Wayne State University, later of Stanford University.

Over 250 Master degrees and 120 PhD theses have been awarded. Many alumni have become prominent members of the Brazilian chemical community, holding position in different universities, research centers and companies.
