Organic Chemistry Seminar: Christina Woo, Harvard University

Event time: 
May 10, 2023 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Event description: 

Join Yale Chemistry for an Organic Chemistry Seminar with Christina Woo, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Harvard University.

The Woo lab draws from the fields of chemical biology, organic synthesis, and mass spectrometry to understand small molecule activity in the proteome. We seek to develop and apply chemical proteomic methods to study the interactions of therapeutics, natural products, and metabolites within the cellular proteome. In parallel, we develop synthetic access to unique chemical scaffolds followed by identification of their protein targets and functional relationship to biological outcome. Studies from the Woo laboratory will have implications in drug discovery, synthetic methods, and new mechanisms by which small molecules influence biological systems.

Date: May 10, 2023
Time: 4:00pm
Location: SCL160
