Corey Stephenson's Biography



Corey Stephenson, Professor, University of Michigan

Corey was born in 1974 in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. Upon completion of secondary school in Collingwood, he began studies in chemistry at the University of Waterloo in the coop program. As part of this program, he was able to participate in internships in research labs at Apotex Inc., Merck Frosst Centre for Therapeutic Research and Astra Research Centre Montreal (now AstraZeneca). After graduation in 1998, he began graduate studies under the direction of Professor Peter Wipf at the University of Pittsburgh. His doctoral studies involved investigations into new C-C bond forming reactions of alkenylzirconocenes and cascade reaction sequences which were initiated by this bond formation. These new compounds were then utilized in a diversity-oriented approach to library synthesis and the methodologies implemented by the Pittsburgh CMLD. Following his departure from Pittsburgh, he began post-doctoral studies at Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule in Zürich, Switzerland under the direction of Professor Erick M. Carreira. The focus of his research activities in Zürich was in the area of catalytic asymmetric synthesis and alkaloid total synthesis. In September 2007, he joined the Department of Chemistry at Boston University as an Assistant Professor and is a co-PI in the Center for Methodologies and Library Development (CMLD-BU). He was granted tenure and promoted to Associate Professor in February, 2013. In July 2013, he joined the Department of Chemistry at the University of Michigan as Associate Professor of Chemistry.
Since joining the department in 2007 Corey has been the recipient of the Thieme Synlett/Synthesis Journal Award (2009), the Boehringer–Ingelheim New Investigator Award (2010), an NSF CAREER award (2011-2016), the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship (2011-2013), the Amgen Young Investigator Award (2011), the Novartis Early Career Award in Organic Chemistry (2012-2015), the Eli Lilly Grantee Award (2013-2015) the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award (2013) and the EROS Best Reagent Award (2014).
