Keynote Speaker: Adrian Whitty (Boston University)Presented by the Chemical Biology Discussion Group
Reported by Sarah Webb | Posted October 2, 2009
The year-end meeting of the Chemical Biology Discussion Group, held June 1, 2009, highlighted the diverse spokes of chemical biology around a central theme: biomolecular recognition. In his keynote talk, Adrian Whitty described an effort to find small molecules that disrupt protein–protein interactions. Shorter student and postdoc talks covered attempts to diversify the palette of small molecules available for drug discovery, new biomolecular switches, a new antibiotic target, chemical analogs for studying DNA damage, sorting cellular proteins, and a synthetic motor built from and fueled by strands of DNA. While very different in scope, all linked back to the central issue: harnessing the chemistry of biology for new applications.
