Utilization of Donor-functionalized Redox Noninnocent Ligands to Promote Manganese- and Molybdenum-based Catalysis

Aug 17, 2018 3:45pm | Event
Bateman Physical Sciences Center H Wing 151

Ryan Trovitch, PhD, Associate Faculty, Biodesign Applied Structural Discovery  While redox active ligands have played an important role in homogeneous catalyst development, their utility has largely relied on bulky substituents that prevent the metal from participating in undesired organometallic pathways. In contrast, efforts in our laboratory have focused on the application of redox noninnocent ligands that are capable of binding to a metal center beyond their traditionally...

Analysis of Cancer Genomes for Personalized Immuno-therapy in Clinical Phase 1 Trial

Aug 22, 2018 3:30pm | Event
Biodesign Institute, Auditorium

Hojoon Lee, PhD, Medical/Oncology, Stanford University School of Medicine Antigen-driven processes are believed to be crucial to anticancer immune responses. Certain somatic mutations in cancer genomes result in amino acid alterations, which can generate tumor-specific immunogenic peptides called neoantigens. Most often these mutations are unique to individual patients, highlighting the need for personalized approaches to exploiting the interactions between T cells and mutation-derived tumor...

Albumin Oxidizability as a Forensic Marker of Blood Plasma/Serum Exposure to Thawed Conditions

Aug 24, 2018 3:45pm | Event
Bateman Physical Sciences Center H Wing 151

Chad Borges, PhD, Assistant Professor, Biodesign Virginia G. Piper for Personalized Diagnostics Exposure of blood plasma/serum (P/S) specimens to the thawed state (i.e., > -30 °C) is arguably the most difficult preanalytical variable to control and track during the lifetime of an archived sample. Such exposures can produce biomolecular changes that impact measurements of clinical markers and are therefore important to track in an evidence-based manner. This talk will describe a simple,...

Engineering Bioinspired Materials for Human Health Applications

Aug 27, 2018 10:45am | Event
Biodesign Institute, Auditorium

Jessica Schiffman, PhD, Associate Professor, Chemical Engineering, Professor James M. Douglas Career Development Faculty Fellow, University of Massachusetts By synthesizing bioinspired and “greener” materials, we can reduce the spread of microbial resistant genes and the use of toxic solvents in applications, such as wound healing scaffolds and water purification membranes, respectively. Jessica Schiffman will discuss a story from her lab’s two synergistic research thrusts, ranging...
