Kyle Biegasiewicz is an Assistant Professor in the School of Molecular Sciences and the Biodesign Institute at ASU. He received his Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemistry from Niagara University in 2010, conducting undergraduate research with Prof. Ronny Priefer, where he established a general approach for the synthesis of the isoflavone class of natural products.  He then pursued graduate studies in synthetic organic chemistry with Prof. Robert K. Boeckman, Jr. at the University of Rochester, developing a scalable process for the hydromethylation of aldehydes that ultimately enabled the gram-scale synthesis of the apoptosis inducer, (-)-rasfonin. Upon completing his Ph.D., he moved to Princeton University as a Postdoctoral Research Associate working with Prof. Todd K. Hyster, expanding the synthetic repertoire of enzymes through photoexcitation with visible light.
