Sotirios Totokotsopoulos Awarded BMS Fellowship

Sotirios Totokotsopoulos, graduate student in the Nicolaou lab, has been named one of five 2012-2013 Bristol-Myers Squibb Graduate Fellows in Synthetic Organic Chemistry. The fellowship recipients were chosen “based on the graduate students’ demonstrated academic and research achievements as well as their potential for significant future accomplishments,” according to the award announcement.

A native of Thessaloniki, Greece, Totokotsopoulos’s research focuses on development of improved methods in sulfenylation of 2,5-diketopiperazines and application to the total synthesis of natural and designed epidithio-, epitetrathio- and bis-methylthiodiketopiperazines. A number of these dithiodiketopiperazines show potent activities against viruses, bacteria, and cancer cells.
