  • Prof. Bozovic Flyer Title: Physics of the Auditory System Abstract: Hair cells of the auditory system constitute a remarkable biological sensor that exhibits nanometer-scale sensitivity of mechanical detection. Our experiments explore the active nonlinear processes behind the detection of very weak signals. We demonstrate the presence of chaos in the innate motility of active bundles, and…

Special Houk-Jung Organic Colloquium 247: Soumitra Athavale

  • Speaker: Soumitra Athavale
  • Born and raised in India, Soumitra did his BS-MS in Chemistry and Biology at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune. In the US, Soumitra completed his doctoral studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Prof. Scott Denmark. His research was focused on elucidating the mechanism of the Soai reaction – an extraordinary transformation displaying the unique phenomenon of amplifying asymmetric autocatalysis.  Currently, he is a postdoctoral scholar in Prof. Frances Arnold’s group at the California Institute of Technology, where his work is focused on the development of new-to-nature nitrene transfer reactions with hemeproteins.  In 2020, competing as a solo participant, Soumitra was the co-winner of the Merck Compound Challenge, a retrosynthesis competition where teams from around the world compete to come up with a route for a target small molecule.

  • Mani L. Bhaumik Centennial Collaboratory 607 Charles E. Young Dr., East, Los Angeles
  • Prof. Wickens Flyer Selective Synthesis via Light and Electricity Abstract: We are investigating how organic radical ions–typically thought of as fleeting intermediates–can be tamed and exploited as a new family of organocatalysts and small molecule reagents. We identified selective generation of such species as a key hurdle stymying exploration these electronically-destabilized systems. To address this…

  • Flyer: Zhipeng Lu Flyer Title: What does RNA look like in cells? Structures, interactions and modifications. Abstract: RNA in living cells are in constant motion, form dynamic structures, and interact with many molecules, including other RNAs. Direct determination of RNA structures and interactions in vivo is essential to understanding their functions, and developing new RNA-based…
