Clayton Heathcock Lectureship: Studies Related to the ATP-Adenosine Pathway

Seminar: Organic Chemistry | February 5 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Terry Rosen, Arcus Biosciences

 College of Chemistry

Tumor cell death induced by hypoxia or chemotherapy releases large amounts of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) into the extracellular environment. ATP is rapidly converted to AMP (adenosine monophosphate) which, in turn, is converted by hypoxia-induced CD73 into adenosine (ADO). ADO suppresses immune responses, including those of T cells, NK cells and dendritic cells through activation of adenosine...   More >

Single Molecule Probes and Single Particles Probed

Seminar: Physical Chemistry | February 5 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Laura Kaufman, Department of Chemistry, Columbia University

 College of Chemistry

I will describe two projects in which we characterize complex systems – supercooled liquids and conjugated polymer aggregates – through single molecule or single particle fluorescence imaging. First, in supercooled liquids – systems that display behaviors consistent with the presence of heterogeneous dynamics – we investigate the time scales over which heterogeneities persist using “ideal” single...   More >
