In addition to his academic background in chemistry, Rytis has extensive working experience in commercial laboratories using industrial and analytical equipment.
His core specialization areas include development of new organic compounds and synthesis methods, their improvement and application for larger scale production.
Rytis is also in charge of industrial production projects, new customer acquisition and product marketing.
Head of Research
Edvinas is a professor at the department of organic chemistry at Vilnius University. He worked at the Lund University in Sweden and the University of Geneva in Switzerland where he was involved in studies of various organic multichromophoric photoactive systems on surfaces, surface-template synthesis and anion-π catalysis.
After returning to Vilnius University as an associate professor at the Department of Organic Chemistry in 2012, he was promoted to a full professor in 2016, and teaches Supramolecular Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Stereochemistry of Biomolecules as well as delivers lectures at various European universities as a guest lecturer.
Mr Orentas is also a co-author of numerous research papers and focuses on tubular H-bonded structures, system chemistry, supramolecular polymers and capsules, strained bifunctional heterocycles, organic photochemistry stimuli-responsive H-bonded polymers, polychromophoric aggregates and organic photovoltaics.
Sigitas holds a PhD in Chemistry since 2004. His key areas are organic synthesis, asymmetric synthesis and catalysis and stereoselective reactions, and he is also a co-author of numerous scientific articles, 30+ of which are published on the ISI’s Web of Science.
His experience includes a post-doctoral stay at the University of Glasgow where he focused on asymmetric organic catalysis and synthesis of organic mercury compounds, working with moisture- and air-sensitive reagents and using the fundamental methods for purification and analysis of materials, such as BMR, MS, FT-IR, UV, chiral gas and liquid chromatography and molecular modelling.
Lithuanian National Cancer Institute
Established in 1931, the National Cancer Institute (NVI) is the only specialised oncology institution in Lithuania operating as the clinical cancer centre certified and accredited by the Organisation of European Cancer Institutes.
NVI is involved in diverse research studies related to nano-technologies, molecular biology, genetics and the most advanced immunotherapy conducted at both the national and the international levels.
The institute is developing foundations for individualised precision medicine and this approach includes early and accurate cancer diagnosis, selection of the most appropriate treatment strategies, active prevention and monitoring programs and palliative medicine.
