The UIC College of Pharmacy and the Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy invite you to join us at the annual Norman R. Farnsworth Lecture. This year's speaker is Dr. Jon Clardy. He will be giving a lecture titled: Molecular Diversity and Other Lessons from Natural Products.
Dr. Clardy obtained his BS degree from Yale University and his PhD from Harvard University – both in chemistry. He has served on the Chemistry Department faculties of Iowa State University and Cornell University, and he is currently the Hsien Wu & Daisy Yen Wu Professor of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School. His research has focused on naturally occurring biologically active small molecules, their macromolecular targets, and their roles in biology and medicine. His current interests involve the molecular underpinnings of complex symbiotic systems involving both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, bacterial influences on animal and plant development, bacterial communications, and the human gut microbiome.
The lecture will be broadcast to the Rockford campus Rm E223.
