VICB Seminar, Phil Dawson, Scripps: ''Making New Connections In Synthetic Protein Chemistry'

Wednesday, October 24, 2018,

  • Location: Biological Sciences Building/Medical Research Building (MRB) III • 465 21st Ave S • Nashville, TN 37232
  • Room: 1220

The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology (VICB) presents Phil Dawson, Scripps: ""Making New Connections In Synthetic Protein Chemistry"

Key Lecture Points

· Our focus is the development and utilization of methods to incorporate unnatural chemical groups into proteins
· We have developed a chemical approach for the production of the large polypeptide chains that comprise protein molecules, enabling us to change the structure of a protein in ways impossible by natural means
· Our goal is to introduce non-coded amino acids and other chemical groups into proteins to better understand the molecular basis of protein function
