Carbopalladation Cascades – Not only syn, but also anti

Seminar: Special Seminar | March 4 | 1:30-2:30 p.m. | 775B Tan Hall

 Prof. Daniel Werz, Technical University Braunschweig

 College of Chemistry

A characteristic feature of carbopalladation reactions is the syn-attack of the organopalladium species LnX[Pd]-R on the reacting π-system. Such a step results in compounds bearing Pd and R on the same side of the originating alkene moiety. Embedded into longer domino sequences complex structures are efficiently obtained by
a repetition of this syn-carbopalladation step. In this way, linear...   More >

PHYSICS/SQB Colloquia: "Exploring Embryonic Patterning With Colonies Of Human Embryonic Stem Cells"

Seminar: Structural & Quantitative Biology | March 4 | 4-5 p.m. | 1 LeConte Hall

 Eric Siggia, The Rockefeller University

 College of Chemistry, Department of Physics

Embryology at the beginning of the 21st century finds itself in a situation similar to neurobiology; the behavior of the component pieces is understood in some detail, but how they self-assemble to become life is still very hazy. There are 100’s of molecules that enable cell communication and genetics defines their function by classifying aberrant embryos at a suitable intermediate stage of...   More >

Chemical Biology Approaches for Interrogating the Contributions of Altered Circadian Rhythms and Macrophages to Cancer Aggression

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

 Michelle Farkas, Department of Chemistry, University of Massachusetts Amherst

 College of Chemistry

Research in the Farkas group involves the development and use of molecular tools in order to study, image, and treat cancer subtypes. Significant advances have been made in understanding and treating cancer, however, there remain many unknowns, especially in the arena of how and why particular diseases become aggressive and metastasize. We are specifically interested in the roles that...   More >

Impact of atomic structure and dynamics on solar cell performance of metal halide perovskite thin films

Colloquium: Chem. & Biomol. Engineering Colloquium | March 13 | 4-6 p.m. | 180 Tan Hall

 Joshua Choi, Professor, University of Virginia

 Department of Chemical Engineering

Metal halide perovskites (MHPs) are revolutionizing the solar cell research field - the record power conversion efficiency of MHPs based solar cells has reached 23%, which rivals that of silicon solar cells. What is particularly exciting about MHPs is that they can be manufactured into solar cell devices at low-cost using low temperature solution processing. Based on these attributes, MHPs have...   More >

Single-Cell BioMEMS Tools for Monitoring Cancer Immunotherapy: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | March 15 | 2-3 p.m. | 4 LeConte Hall

 Prof. Rong Fan, Yale University, Biomedical Engineering

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

I will begin with discussing a novel bioMEMS device technology for single-cell immune function profiling, in particular, the co-detection of 40+ cytokines/chemokines at the level of single cells, representing the highest multiplexing recorded to date for a single-cell protein secretion assay.

I will describe how this microdevice called IsoCode was conceived, evolved over generations, further...   More >
