        Colloquium Schedule | Upcoming Events

        1. CATALYTIC CO2 REDUCTION BY PALLADIUM
          DECORATED SILICON HYDRIDE NANOSHEETS
          The Ozin Group shows how decorating silicon nonosheets with palladium
          nanoparticles renders the process catalytic, a breakthrough with far
          reaching technological implications.
          Ozin group, Nature Catalysis, 2019
        2. UNUSUAL REARRANGEMENT OF AN
          N-DONOR-FUNCTIONALIZED N-HETEROCYCLIC
          CARBENE LIGAND ON GROUP 8 METALS
          The Song group discovered an unusual rearrangement reaction,where
          the N,C-chelate ligand of a piano-stool Group 8complex isomerizes into
          an N,N-chelate ligand. Mechanistic study suggests the involvement of a
          high-energy metal-alkylidene intermediate.
          Song group, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2018
        3. DYSREGULATION OF MITOCHONDRIAL CLPP
          PROTEASE AS A POTENTIAL STRATEGY TO
          DEVELOP NOVEL ANTICANCERS
          Human mitochondrial ClpP was found to be activated by specific
          acyldepsipeptide compounds causing apoptotic cell death.
          Houry and Batey groups, Cell Chemical Biology, 2018
        4. AMINE HEMILABILITY ENABLES BORON TO
          MECHANISTICALLY RESEMBLE EITHER
          HYDRIDE OR PROTON
          Mechanistic studies of the hemilability of MIDA
          (N-methyliminodiacetic acid) boronates reveal the chameleonic
          behaviour of the BMIDA group.
          Yudin group, Nature Chemistry, 2018
        5. TIPPING CELL SIGNALING PATHWAYS BY SALTS
          Mechanistic insights into allosteric regulation ofthe A2A adenosine
          G protein-coupled receptor byphysiological cations.
          Prosser group, Nature Communications, 2018
        6. COMPETITIVE SELF-ASSEMBLY KINETICS AS A
          ROUTE TO CONTROLLING MORPHOLOGY OF
          CORE-CRYSTALLINE CYLINDRICAL MICELLESS
          One can manipulate the seeded-growth kinetics of block
          copolymer unimers to control the growth sequence of
          unimers and thus the comicelle morphology.
          Winnik group, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2018
        7. INHIBITING MYC BINDING TO THE E-BOX DNA
          MOTIF BY ME47 DECREASES
          TUMOUR XENOGRAFT GROWTH
          The Shin lab's designed protein ME47 decreased tumor growth in
          a triple negative breast cancer mouse model, a type of cancer with
          no effective treatments.
          Shin, Chan & Penn groups, Oncogene, 2017

        Awards:

        Professor Andrei Yudin wins Connaught Innovation Award

        Congratulations to Professor Andrei Yudin who is one of 12 U of T researchers to win a 2019 Connaught Innovation Award. The award acknowledges and supports promising technologies that have strong socio-economic or commercial potential.

        Professor Yudin has been recognized for the development of stable boryl carboxylates, the enabling building blocks for chemical synthesis.

        News and Announcements:

        Eugenia Duodu: STEM education meets social priorities

        Eugenia Duodu (PhD '15) is featured by the Chemical Institute of Canada where she talks about her work with Visions of Science, a non-profit that works to empower youth in low-income communities by engaging them in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

        "Being able to expand our reach in so many communities is something I’ve always wanted to do ?and we’re doing it."


        Darcy Burns: Helium shortage carries serious consequences

        Darcy Burns (PhD '08) talked with the CBC about the latest helium shortage and the consequences that come with it. He explains the wide range of uses for helium, from medical diagnostics to space travel.






        Professor Aspuru-Guzik named one of four new CIFAR chairs in AI

        Four more University of Toronto researchers have been awarded research chairs in artificial intelligence by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR).

        The new U of T chairs, which include Professor Alán Aspuru-Guzik, will join another eight at U of T who were named among the inaugural group last fall and are all associated with the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
