Synthesis of oligosaccharides

Oliviana Călin, Ph.D.

Dr. Oliviana Călin studied Chemistry at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes (France) specializing in life science chemistry and technology involving organic chemistry, biochemistry and chemical engineering. Her studies within Federation Gay Lussac were awarded with a Novartis fellowship. 

In September 2009, she joined the group of Prof. Seeberger at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Berlin (Germany) as a Marie Curie fellow. Her research focused on asymmetric synthesis of rare sugars as a key step for the assembly of immunogenic glycoconjugates, as well as on the automated solid phase synthesis of oligosaccharides. She received her Ph.D degree in 2013 from Freie Universität, Berlin. 

She has gained industrial experience with Sanofi-Aventis Research and Development and Veolia Environment. Her scientific expertise comprises life science chemistry and technology and more specifically organic and organometallic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, asymmetric synthesis and oligosaccharide synthesis. 

Dr. Călin is a well-versed expert in saccharide chemistry and vaccines.

Oliviana Călin speaks French, English and Romanian fluently and has good knowledge of German and Spanish.
