Terry Shing-Bong LOU 樓丞邦

  • Fellowship in 2020 at Scripp's Research Institute
  • University of Oxford Croucher Scholarship in 2016 at University of Oxford

Terry is an organic chemist specializing in methodology and the development of novel chemical reactions. He is currently a Scientist in Octant Bio, a biotech company based in Emeryville, California, and focuses on expanding the chemical capabilities of the company's high-throughput platform.

Terry obtained his BSc degree in Chemistry with First Class Honours from the University of Hong Kong in 2016. Inspired by Prof. Chi-Ming Che, Terry began his research career in the Che group and worked on metal-mediated catalysis in 2013-2016. He received the Overseas Research Fellowship in 2014 to work with Prof. Steve Ley CBE FRS at the University of Cambridge on Flow Chemistry and diazo compounds. Terry then read for DPhil in Organic Chemistry in the University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Michael Willis on new catalytic routes to sulfonyl fluorides and graduated in 2020. In 2021, Terry received the Croucher Fellowship and joined Prof. Phil Baran's Lab at Scripps Research, where he focused on the development of novel, efficient and practical synthetic methods using electrochemical technique. His research interests are based around the development of new technique and methodology for chemical syntheses.
