About Us...

The Sammis Group is a diverse team of students and scientists with a passion for synthetic organic chemistry.  We develop efficient and user-friendly alternatives to synthetic transformations in organic molecules, and strive to solve some of the problems currently facing methods development.  Our research is geared towards pharmaceutically and industrially relevant motifs, currently with a focus on the synthetic applications of sulfuryl and thionyl fluoride.

We are comprised of undergraduate and graduate students, both from The University of British Columbia and other institutions from around the world.  Our group is always looking for new members with a desire to push the barrier, and we welcome the opportunity for you to join us.

Our home is the beautiful Lower Mainland of the British Columbia coastline, where we are treated to stellar views of the mountains in the north, and the Strait of Georgia and Vancouver Island to the west.  We are surrounded by nature, and enjoy exploring in and around the city in our downtime.  Vancouver is a vast multicultural hub representing people from across Canada and around the world, and is a unique city to travel and explore.

Undergraduate alumni from our group have gone on to a variety of careers, and many have chosen to continue their education in world-renowned institutions.  Our graduate students have advanced into a wide breadth of careers in industry and academia, as well as to highly competitive post-doctoral positions.  A few of our doctoral alumni have made their careers among the faculty of the chemistry department at UBC.  We take pride in preparing our colleagues for their careers, and strive to instill a sense of confidence in them during their time with us.
