Chemistry research students presented their research at the Arkansas IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) Conference in Fayetteville.
The Department of Chemistry with the St. Jude Chemical Biology Department and the local chapter of the American Chemical Society co-hosted the Third Annual Undergraduate Chemistry Symposium.
Diana Bigler ’15 soon will have her honors research completed at Rhodes published in Computational and Theoretical Chemistry.
Research in the Peterson lab uses an interdisciplinary approach to understand important biological processes by utilizing tools from synthetic organic chemistry, chemical biology, biochemistry and molecular biology. We currently have two main projects ongoing in our lab: 1) synthesis of dopaminergic compounds and related catecholic to investigate the mechanism of various enzymes, including L-DOPA dioxygenase (collaboration with Prof.
Jennifer Rote ’15 helped create an internship that combined both her academic and personal interests: challenging research in bio-organic chemistry and experience abroad.
