          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.
