Organic Chemistry Seminar: Hans Renata, Professor, Scripps Research, Florida

Event time: 
May 3, 2023 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Event description: 

Join Yale Chemistry for an Organic Chemistry Seminar with Hans Renata, Professor, Scripps Research, Florida.

By combining the power of modern enzyme engineering tools and advances in genome mining, The Renata laboratory aims to develop practical enzymatic solutions for traditionally challenging organic reactions, especially in the realm of C–H functionalization chemistry. The utility of these transformations will be showcased in the concise, scalable synthesis of bioactive natural products and their analogues, which in turn will serve as potential leads in drug discovery efforts or novel chemical probes to interrogate various cellular processes. These goals are pursued through collaborative efforts that take advantage of the uniquely interdisciplinary ecosystem at Scripps Research.

Date: May 3, 2022
Time: 4:00pm
Location: SCL160
