Kremers Lecture TODAY! 12:00pm-1:20pm Rennebohm Hall, Rooms 2002 & 2006 Bruce Mueller, PharmD Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor, University of Michigan Dept. of Clinical, Social & Administrative Sciences, College of Pharmacy Associate Director, Department of Pharmacy Services, University Hospital
Social and Administrative Sciences in Pharmacy Seminar "Patients and Their Medications... Or Not" Karen Farris, Ph.D. Thursday, April 9 @ 2:00 PM, 1128 Rennebohm Hall Dr. Farris is the Charles R. Walgreen III Professor of Pharmacy Administration and Professor of Social and Administrative Sciences at the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy. She is Chair (Interim) of the Department of Clinical, Social & Administrative Pharmacy in the College. Her research and teaching focuses on social theories to examine how older adults manage their medications and the roles of pharmacists in influencing medication use, including public health issues.
Pharmaceutical Sciences Seminar Thursday, February 26, 2015 @ 3:30 pm Rennebohm Hall, Room 2006 Paul Lockman, Ph.D. Douglas Glover Chair of Pharmaceutical Sciences & Associate Center Director for Translational Research West Virginia University, School of Pharmacy The Fight in Treating Brain Metastases of Breast Cancer This talk will focus on the current limitations of chemotherapy. In addition, we will present novel approaches to reduce breast cancer cell invasion to brain, to modulate BBB permeability and improve chemotherapy uptake into CNS metastases, with an overall purpose to reduce brain metastases-related death. The data were generated from state of the art methodologies including 2-photon microscopy, merged quantitative fluorescent and isotope imaging, and drug formulations. UW-Madison AAPS Student Chapter will host a roundtable discussion to follow seminar – location to be announced.
Pharmaceutical Sciences Seminar: Faculty Candidate Dr. Ting Wang Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Thursday, January 22, 2015 - 1:30pm Rennebohm Hall, Room 1116 Chemical Synthesis as an Expanding Tool in Chemistry Biology Interface: From Bioactive Secondary Metabolites to Proteins Chemical synthesis is serving as an important resource to approach biological questions and develop new therapeutics. This seminar will highlight the total syntheses of bioactive second metabolites phorboxazole A, hormone oxytocin, and human protein Kras. Phorboxazole A is a marine natural product with a mean GI50=1.6 nM against the National Cancer Institute’s 60-tumor-cell panel. Efficient total synthesis and structure activity relationship studies are described. We recently developed a novel amide bond formation strategy by using isonitriles. This isonitrile-mediated peptide bond formation delivered a total synthesis of oxytocin, which is a long-known, well-appreciated 9-mer cyclic peptide hormone used to induce labor. More recently, there has been a growing perception that oxytocin may be implicated in autism and related autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Preliminary structure and activity relationship (SAR) studies will be described to enhance the stability of the molecule. Finally, the synthetic scope is expanded to protein Kras. We will highlight a total chemical synthesis of Kras G12V mutation. The success of chemical synthesis will enable us to search short D-peptide ligands of Kras G12V mutation by using mirror image phage display technology.
Pharmaceutical Sciences Seminar: Faculty Candidate Dr. Corey Hopkins, Research Assistant Professor Vanderbilt Center for Neuroscience Drug Discovery Thursday, January 8, 2015 - 2:15 p.m. Rennebohm Hall, Room 1116 Discovery and Optimization of Novel, Small Molecules as in vivo Tool Compounds and Beyond The seminar will highlight work from my laboratory in the discovery and development of novel tool compounds for a variety of therapeutic indications. Work covered will include positive allosteric modulators (PAMs) of the metabotropic glutamate receptor 4 for Parkinson’s disease, novel BMP inhibitors/potentiators for Tylenol overdose and fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) and inhibitors of TRPC4/5 for the protection of the kidney filter. Compounds were identified by traditional high-throughput screening as well as from a high-content in vivo zebrafish screen and optimized utilizing iterative medicinal chemistry, in vitro and in vivo PK, and in vivo animal models at Vanderbilt University.
