Enabling Technologies for Chemistry Driven Glycoscience
Steven Townsend, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Vanderbilt University,

This event will take place on Zoom

Carbohydrates are the most abundant organic molecules on earth and are critical to a myriad of biological processes. The Vanderbilt Laboratory for Glycoscience uses a blend of synthetic organic chemistry and microbiology to elucidate the biological roles of glycoconjugates, with a foci on advances in chemical synthesis and learning new mechanistic concepts. Our discussion will be divided into two categories: (1) the synthesis of hybrid anthracyclines and (2) application of the host defense properties of human milk.
