Week 7

Three-Ring Circus Strategies for Polycyclic Alkaloid Synthesis

Semester:

           This weeks’ presentation was about strategies for polycyclic alkaloid synthesis. The title for this presentation is “Three-Ring cricus strategies for Polycyclic Alkaloid Synthesis”. The speaker for this presentation was Jennifer L.. Stockdill. Basically, she mentioned about her experiment and synthesis for medical uses.

Strategies for alkaloids synthesis

Semester:

The topic of our seminar for this week was “Strategies for polycyclic Alkaloids Synthesis”.  The guest speaker who presented this topic is named Dr. Jennifer Stockhill.  She is currently an Assistant Professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI.  her doctoral thesis work was based upon the synthesis of bioactive marine alkaloid zoanthenol.  Now , she is focused on the designing efficient strategies for synthesis of complex natural products and for synthesis and manipulation of proteins and such related structures.

Semester:

Dr. Jennifer L. Stockdill, associate professor of chemistry at Wayne State University in Michigan, presented on the topic of polycyclic alkaloids. I had a very hard time feeling engaged in this presentation, partly because I didn’t feel fully engaged through the presenter and partly because I had a difficult time fully understanding her topic. Nevertheless, the presentation was very informative and she was very professional. I also applaud her for being well invested into the topic and knowing it well.

Semester:

This week's speaker was Jennifer L. Stockdill from Wayne State University's Chemistry Department. As the title suggests, her presentation was complex yet accessible. Although the specific subject she discussed, Polycyclic Alkaloid Synthesis, is far above my level of comprehension, there were several points in her presentation that I found to be quite interesting. To summarize what she discussed (in a very over-simplified manner), her lab is trying to achieve improved synthesis of a known lactone for eventual use in the field of neuroscience medicine.

Semester:

Jennifer L Stockdill, an assistant professor in Wayne State University, has given a lecture for 8th chemistry seminal. Alkaloid is a natural compound containing basic nitrogen atoms. It can be obtained from various living things such as bacteria, plants, or animals. Cocaine, caffeine, morphine, quinine, and nicotine are the representative alkaloids. Jennifer has researched about alkaloids in natural products and she developed many rapid and novel approaches to synthesize polycyclic alkaloids.

Week 8

Semester:

Dr. Jennifer L. Stockdill associate professor of organic chemistry at Wayne State University, was the chemistry seminar speaker this week at Andrews University. She spoke on the topic of alkaloids and the importance of determining new synthetic methods for the creation of more advanced lead molecule for use in drug discovery. She focused on the creation of tertiary nitrogen that were at the intersection of three rings.

Semester:

Alkaloids are substances that are found in many of the products we encounter from day to day, such as caffeine, or in some of those we don't, like methamphetamines. Professor Jennifer L. Stockdill, from Wayne University, came and discussed her area of research with us. She presented to us, "Three-Ring Circus: Strategies for Polycyclic Alkaloid Synthesis." She was a very interesting and thorough presenter. She shared with us that there has been a shift in the type of products used in the production of many drugs, anti-bacterials, or anti-cancer agents.

Strategies for Polycyclic Alkaloid Synthesis (Week 8)

Semester:

This past week’s chemistry seminar was done by Jennifer L. Stockdill. Jennifer is an assistant professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. Jennifer Stockdill spoke of strategies for polycyclic alkaloid synthesis. The organic chemistry involved in Stockdill’s lab included new reaction methods, natural products synthesis, synthesis and functionalization of peptides and proteins, and lastly, chemical biological tools.
