|Presenter:||Samuel Tartakoff, Dhimiter Cobani, Nicole Rosenberg|
|Location:||SLU: Johnson 309|
|Classes:||1 Session 1.0 hours|
|Dates:||Fri 3:30 PM 11/02|
Despite the fact that chemistry is an essential part of the medicines we use on a daily basis, many aspects of synthetic medicines are not generally understood. A few chemistry demonstrations will lead into discussions about topics such as what medicines are and are not, how they are discovered and developed, and the similarities and differences between natural vs. synthetic medicines.
Samuel Tartakoff is a professor at St. Lawrence University and received his PhD in organic chemistry from the University of California – Irvine. He teaches general and organic chemistry, as well as conducting research into new chemical reactions and potential new medicines.
Dhimiter Cobani and Nicole Rosenberg and other presenters are chemistry and biology students at St. Lawrence who have been researching the topics that we will be discussing.
