Matthew Knowe, Ph.D.

Dr. Matthew Knowe is a Principal Scientist at SSTI. He developed a novel organocatalyst for the enantioselective desymmetrization of carboxylic acids, and applied these methods towards improved synthesis of biologically relevant small molecules. He also prepared isotopically labeled sterols for use as internal standards in mass spectrometry to assay sterol stasis and metabolism. Dr. Knowe received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Vanderbilt University in the areas of synthetic methodology, catalysis, and total synthesis, and completed his postdoctoral training at Vanderbilt University.
