Our latest paper in collaboration with the Ronning Lab has been accepted in Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry. The work is titled 'Zwitterionic pyrrolidine-phosphonates: Inhibitors of the glycoside hydrolase-like phosphorylase Streptomyces coelicolor GlgEI-V279S" and the abstract is available here.
Ms. Miranda Dermanelian, an undergraduate, had her summer research project approved for funding. Congrats Miranda!

We are pleased to welcome first year student Alexander Landgraf to the lab. Other events from the fall semester include group multiple presentations at the 12th Midwest Carbohydrate and Glycobiology Symposium and a presentation at the 4th Asian Chemical Biology Conference.
B.S. Chemistry Major Ms. Miranda Dermanelian started undergraduate research in the lab today. The first reaction is set up and running :)
Our paper titled' Synthesis and evaluation of new 2-aminothiophenes against Mycobacterium tuberculosis" was published in Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry. The best compounds showed potency (MIC = 0.20–0.44 μM) against Mtb strains resistant to isoniazid, rifampicin and fluoroquinolones. A link to the article can be found here.
