Tyler McQuade's Biography

Tyler McQuade, Associate Professor, Florida State University

Dr. Tyler McQuade recently joined the Organic Division of the FSU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry as Associate Professor. An Assistant Professor at Cornell University from 2001-2007, Professor McQuade graduated from the University of California - Irvine with a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in Biology in 1992, and from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a PhD in Chemistry in 1998. He received a number of awards, including the prestigious ACS graduate fellowship, as a graduate student working under the guidance of Professor Samuel Gellman. In addition, one of the surfactants for solubilizing membrane proteins described in his Ph.D. thesis has recently become commercially available. His post-doctorate research with Professor Timothy Swager at MIT was supported by an NIH Fellowship.Dr. McQuade’s current research combines the organic, bioorganic and materials chemistry of his undergraduate, graduate and post-doc work to focus on creating multi-catalyst systems that will improve the quality and efficiency of chemical synthesis. His group’s long-term goal is to advance medical and biological research by creating multi-catalyst systems that provide access to new intermediates, yield more selective reactions, and allow the construction of many bonds in one vessel.With a deep interest in sustainable chemistry (a more environmentally benign approach to science), Dr. McQuade and his group are working to make chemical synthesis - especially pharmaceutical production - less wasteful and expensive than it is now. His group’s multidisciplinary environment is yielding both polymers and small molecules that will provide the building blocks for next generation methodology and new tools for sustainable process chemistry. McQuade was a Dreyfus, 3M, Rohm and Haas, Beckman, and NYSTAR Young Investigator and was one of MIT Tech Review’s Top 100 Young Innovators in 2004.
