Graduate students Michael Corsello (Garg) & Jessica Grandner (Houk) presented their graduate research at the ACS DOC’s annual Graduate Research Symposium.

Corsello GrandnerThe 7th annual American Chemistry Society (ACS) Division of Organic Chemistry (DOC) Graduate Research Symposium (GRC) provided an opportunity for 50-75 fourth-year graduate students in organic chemistry to interact with leaders from academia, industry, various funding agencies, and publishers at a single venue. The three-day symposium took place at Bryn Mawr College July 28-31, 2016. 

Corsello presented a poster entitled “Unified Synthetic Strategy Toward the Tubingensin Alkaloids” and Grandner gave a talk titled “Computational Explorations of New Reactions and Useful Selectivities Catalyzed by P450 Enzymes” .

Competition to attend the symposium is extremely strong, which makes Corsello and Grandner’s selection an impressive accomplishment. Nominated students were selected to present their research based on their résumé, a synopsis of research accomplishments and a letter of recommendation from their advisor.
