Fabienne Fache graduated from the Ecole Supérieure de Chimie Industrielle de Lyon (now CPE Lyon), France, in 1987. She went to the University of Strasbourg where she worked on geochemistry and steroid synthesis during her Ph.D. studies in the laboratory of Dr. P. Albrecht. In 1991, she joined the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, and she is presently in the group of Professor O. Piva at the Université de Lyon, Lyon 1. She is particularly interested in finding green methods for organic synthesis using different approaches such as heterogeneous catalysis, fluorous medium, or green reagents and their applications in total synthesis.
