Coffee and a Seminar
- This event has passed.
Join us for Coffee and a Seminar as we welcome Dr. Sarah Reisman from CalTech. The overarching goal of the Reisman Group is to discover, develop, and study new chemical reactions within the context of natural product total synthesis. Over the last century, natural products have played an essential role not only in medicine, but also in advancing the field of synthetic organic chemistry. Their complex architectures, reactive functional groups, and issues of stereochemistry provide a fertile setting for reaction development while exerting strict demands for selectivity and efficiency. Endeavors in natural product synthesis drive advances in the state-of-the-art in organic chemistry, and in so doing, impact a variety of research areas that integrate synthetic tools, from catalysis and materials science to biology.
We will head out from Dabney 108B at 3 PM for coffee before the seminar. If you are unable to join us for coffee, you are still welcome to join us for seminar, which starts at 3:30 PM in Dab 124.
