"Fluorinated bromodomains: Choosing the right halogen for small molecule discovery"

Monday February 6th, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Protein-protein interaction inhibitor discovery has proven difficult due to the large surface area and dynamic interfaces of proteins.  To facilitate the early lead discovery rate, I will first describe a rapid protein-based 19F NMR method for detecting protein-ligand interactions by screening low complexity molecules (fragments) as well as higher complexity molecules.  We label the aromatic […]

"Sesterterpenoids: Methods towards the Synthesis of the γ-Hydroxycarvone Moiety"

Thursday April 13th, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Walnut 110

                Sesterterpenoids are an uncommon type of terpene natural product that have been found to display a wide range of bio activities. Recently, a sub classification of these molecules have been isolated from the marine sponges Hamigera sp. and Phorbas sp., containing a unique cis-γ-hydroxycarvone moiety. This scaffold has proven difficult to synthesize due to […]
