Week 9

Light Activating DNA Cleavage

Semester:

Similar to the seminar presented earlier this seminar, this seminar was focused on understanding the role DNA as a catalyst. DNA also known as deoxyribonucleic acid is a molecule that encodes the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and many viruses. While a catalyst is a reagent that causes an increase in the rate of a chemical reaction. This is because less energy is required to reach the transition state from reactants to products.

Our seminar this week was about  “Light activated DNA cleaving agent. The presenter was Dr. Sundeep Rayat she received he bachelors and master’s degree in Chemistry from Guru Nank Dev University in  Punjab, India.  She then completed her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Missouri-Columbia.  She is currently an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Ball State University .Dr. Rayat has conducted research that involved investigations of properties of N-fused heterocycles, and the synthesis and evaluation of tetrazolethione based on prodrugs.

    Sundeep Rayat has received a PhD in Chemistry at the University Missouri Columbia after receiving the BSc and MSc (honors) Chemistry degrees from Guru Nanak Dev University, Punjab, India. She is now a teacher of organic chemistry at Ball State University. Her research focuses on experimental and computational investigations of  the optoelectronic and biological properties of unique classes of N-fused heterocycles, and synthesis and of tetracolethione based prodrugs for application in photodynamic therapy .

Light Activated DNA Cleaving Agents: Enynyl-1H-tetrezole-5(4H)-thiones for Photodynamic Therapy

Semester:

This week's speaker was Sundeep Rayat. She came to Andrews all the way from the Department of Chemistry at Ball State University. Her main research interests lie in the areas of N-fused heterocycles, for use in materials and medicine, and light activated DNA cleaving agents:  Enynyl-1H-tetrezole-5(4H)-thiones for Photodynamic Therapy.

This week's semiar was presented by Dr. Sundeep Rayat and the topic was about photodynamic therapy by using light activated DNA cleaving agents. Dr. Sundeep Rayat is an associate professor from Ball State University in Indiana. Polydynamic therapy has become a form of medical treatment that is part of a larger category: phototherapy. Phototherapy involves using light as a "weapon" against foreign bacteria, cells, fungi, and viruses. Phototherapy uses 3 things: a photosensitizer, tissue oxygen and a light source.

Week 9 's speaker was Sundeep Rayat, she is an assistant professor of chemistry at Ball State University (Indiana). In the beginning of her presentation she gave an overview of the university where she works, encouraging those students who are were interested in going to graduate school to go there. After her brief overview, she stated her presentation which was titled "Light activated DNA Cleaving Agents" and it focused on answer questions of photodynamic therapy to treat cancer, examples of its clinical use, and the risks and benefits.

          This week’s presentation topic was about photodynamic therapy. The speaker for the chemistry seminar was Sundeep Rayat from Ball state University and the title was “Light Activated DNA cleaving agents". First, she introduced about Ball state University and introduced some of advantages of taking graduate programs in there. Then, she talked about her research.

Light Activated DNA Cleaving Agents (Week 10)

Semester:

This past week’s chemistry seminar was brought to us by Sundeep Rayat. Rayat is an assistant professor of chemistry at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Rayat received her BSc and MSc Chemistry degrees from Guru Nanak Dev University in Punjab, India. Rayat then completed her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Missouri-Columbia and conducted postdoctoral research at Ohio State University. Rayat came and spoke to our seminar class about her recent research which has to do with light activated DNA cleaving agents.

Semester:

On Thursday, 7 November 2013, Sundeep Rayat came Current Topics of Chemistry on a seminar topic entitled “Light Activated DNA Cleaving Agents.” Her seminar sought to answer questions of photodynamic therapy, examples of its clinical use, and the risks and benefits of PDT. Sundeep is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Ball State University, which is located in Muncie, Indiana. She obtained her BSc (Honors) and MSc (Honors) Chemistry degrees from Guru Nanak Dev University, which is in Punjab, India.
