Dr. Sauer currently is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. His research focuses on natural product isolation, microwave accelerated organic synthesis, flow chemistry and electrochemistry. Prior to joining Parkside he worked at Abbott Laboratories/AbbVie for 25 years in roles in as a medicinal chemist in the Cancer Research area, leader of the Abbott High-Throughput Organic Synthesis group which developed tools, methods, and facilities for increasing the efficiency of the drug discovery process, and as a Senior Manager in the Scientific Assessment – Discovery Licensing and Acquisition organization responsible for identifying, evaluating and implementing technologies to enable the drug discovery process for Global Pharmaceutical Research & Development. Dr. Sauer received his B.S. in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and completed his doctoral at the University of South Florida. His thesis work focused on the utilization of the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction to synthesize novel nucleoside analogs. Following completion of his graduate studies he joined The Ohio State University as a National Science Foundation post-doctoral fellow where he worked on the total synthesis of biologically interesting natural products. He is an author on 30 peer-reviewed publications and named inventor on 30 U.S. and International Patents.
