Colloquium Schedule | Upcoming Events

  1. JACS
    CATALYTIC CO2 REDUCTION BY PALLADIUM
    DECORATED SILICON HYDRIDE NANOSHEETS
    The Ozin Group shows how decorating silicon nonosheets with palladium
    nanoparticles renders the process catalytic, a breakthrough with far
    reaching technological implications.
    Ozin group, Nature Catalysis, 2019
  2. JACS
    UNUSUAL REARRANGEMENT OF AN
    N-DONOR-FUNCTIONALIZED N-HETEROCYCLIC
    CARBENE LIGAND ON GROUP 8 METALS
    The Song group discovered an unusual rearrangement reaction,where
    the N,C-chelate ligand of a piano-stool Group 8complex isomerizes into
    an N,N-chelate ligand. Mechanistic study suggests the involvement of a
    high-energy metal-alkylidene intermediate.
    Song group, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2018
  3. Cell
    DYSREGULATION OF MITOCHONDRIAL CLPP
    PROTEASE AS A POTENTIAL STRATEGY TO
    DEVELOP NOVEL ANTICANCERS
    Human mitochondrial ClpP was found to be activated by specific
    acyldepsipeptide compounds causing apoptotic cell death.
    Houry and Batey groups, Cell Chemical Biology, 2018
  4. Nature
    AMINE HEMILABILITY ENABLES BORON TO
    MECHANISTICALLY RESEMBLE EITHER
    HYDRIDE OR PROTON
    Mechanistic studies of the hemilability of MIDA
    (N-methyliminodiacetic acid) boronates reveal the chameleonic
    behaviour of the BMIDA group.
    Yudin group, Nature Chemistry, 2018
  5. Nature
    TIPPING CELL SIGNALING PATHWAYS BY SALTS
    Mechanistic insights into allosteric regulation ofthe A2A adenosine
    G protein-coupled receptor byphysiological cations.
    Prosser group, Nature Communications, 2018
  6. Journal of the American Chemical Society
    COMPETITIVE SELF-ASSEMBLY KINETICS AS A
    ROUTE TO CONTROLLING MORPHOLOGY OF
    CORE-CRYSTALLINE CYLINDRICAL MICELLESS
    One can manipulate the seeded-growth kinetics of block
    copolymer unimers to control the growth sequence of
    unimers and thus the comicelle morphology.
    Winnik group, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2018
  7. Oncogene
    INHIBITING MYC BINDING TO THE E-BOX DNA
    MOTIF BY ME47 DECREASES
    TUMOUR XENOGRAFT GROWTH
    The Shin lab's designed protein ME47 decreased tumor growth in
    a triple negative breast cancer mouse model, a type of cancer with
    no effective treatments.
    Shin, Chan & Penn groups, Oncogene, 2017

Awards:

Professor Andrei Yudin wins Connaught Innovation Award

Professor Andrei Yudin wins Connaught Innovation Award

Congratulations to Professor Andrei Yudin who is one of 12 U of T researchers to win a 2019 Connaught Innovation Award. The award acknowledges and supports promising technologies that have strong socio-economic or commercial potential.

Professor Yudin has been recognized for the development of stable boryl carboxylates, the enabling building blocks for chemical synthesis.

News and Announcements:

Chemistry faculty part of new precision medicine initiative at U of T

The University of Toronto has launched the Precision Medicine Initiative at U of T (PRiME), a new cross-institutional, multi-faculty effort that will leverage the university's excellence in pharmaceutical sciences, medicine, physical sciences and engineering. It will also establish Toronto as a leading centre for precision medicine.

At launch, PRiME has more than 50 researchers from U of T, including 16 with appointments to the department of chemistry.


Eugenia Duodu: STEM education meets social priorities

Eugenia Duodu: STEM education meets social priorities

Eugenia Duodu (PhD '15) is featured by the Chemical Institute of Canada where she talks about her work with Visions of Science, a non-profit that works to empower youth in low-income communities by engaging them in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

"Being able to expand our reach in so many communities is something Ive always wanted to do and were doing it."


Darcy Burns: Helium shortage carries serious consequences

Darcy Burns: Helium shortage carries serious consequences

Darcy Burns (PhD '08) talked with the CBC about the latest helium shortage and the consequences that come with it. He explains the wide range of uses for helium, from medical diagnostics to space travel.
