Colloquium Schedule | Upcoming Events

  1. DNA
    PROTEIN DIMERIZATION PARTNERS ARE DICTATED
    BY THE DNA TARGET, NOT PROTEIN TARGET
    Many genes are regulated by protein hetero- or homodimers. Shin et
    al found that DNA bases outside the protein-DNA recognition target
    determine the protein dimerization partner.
    Shin Group, Molecular Biosystems, January 2017
  2. THE ROLE OF DIMER ASYMMETRY AND
    PROTOMER DYNAMICS IN ENZYME CATALYSIS
    Prosser and coauthor Pai examine a homodimeric enzyme, fluoroacetate
    dehalogenase, which converts a highly toxic pesticide into a harmless
    metabolite, and explore the role of enzyme dynamics in the process.
    Prosser Group, Science, January 2017
  3. Graphical depiction of overall 2D scheme of coated gold microelectrode.
    BIOFOULING-RESISTANT [K+]o SENSOR
    FOR MONITORING EPILEPSY
    A novel approach for in vivo spatio-temporal measurements of [K+]o
    using multichannel monolayer coated gold microelectrodes reveals
    new physiological events not previously seen during seizures in mice.
    Thompson Group, Biosensors, December 2016
  4. SOLAR POWERED REVERSE WATER
    GAS SHIFT REACTION
    The role of defects on the electronic & photocatalytic properties of
    In2O3-x(OH)y NPs for the reverse water-gas shift reaction are revealed,
    a key advance towards efficient catalysts for the CO2 reduction reaction.
    Ozin Group, PNAS, December 2016
  5. Macrocyclization reaction between a linear peptide, an aldehyde and (N-isocyanimino)triphenylphosphorane.
    OXADIAZOLE GRAFTS IN PEPTIDE
    MACROCYCLES
    A new macrocyclization reaction delivers cyclic molecules for
    exploration in drug discovery.
    Yudin Group, Nature Chemistry, December 2016
  6. Figure showing a high degree of bond-selectivity dependent on adsorbate bond alignment.
    BOND SELECTIVE REACTION
    Kelvin Anggara, Kai Huang and Lydie Leung in Polanyi's group
    have shown and explained a hundredfold bond-selectivity in
    electron-induced reaction at a smooth metal surface.
    Polanyi Group, Nature Communications, December 2016

Professor Patrick Gunning named one of Canada's Top 40 Under 40

Professor Patrick Gunning has made this years list of Top 40 Under 40 list. Professor Gunning, who leads UTMs Centre for Medicinal Chemistry, is working on innovative drugs to battle blood, brain and breast cancers.

Its an honour to be named to a list of such distinguished people, says Gunning. Its important to me to do science that can help patients and make a positive contribution to health care.
