A Cascade Reaction of Cinnamyl Azides with Acrylates Directly Generates Tetrahydro-Pyrrolo-Pyrazole Heterocycles
Congrats to Angela for her outstanding work on developing bromodomain inhibitors. Her latest paper (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acsmedchemlett.9b00227) was highlighted as an in this issue "https://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/acsmedchemlett.9b00389". Keep up the great work!
Thank you to the lab who made a return trip to Market Science at the MN State Fair. We had ~275 participants and made >180 batches of slime!
Both Angela and En-Chih were awarded a department Excellence Fellowship for the 2019/2020 academic year! It is great that their excellent accomplishments have been rewarded! Well-deserved and keep it up.
Congratulations to En-Chih Liu for winning the 2019 Gassman Award for an outstanding talk during the 3rd year graduate symposium: En-Chih spoke about this recently published E-CuAAC reaction: https://chem.umn.edu/news/four-students-earn-paul-and-gerda-gassman-awards
Angela Carlson was awarded an Honorable Mention for her outstanding presentation on Bromodomain inhibitors! Congrats Angela!
Angela's review on the interesting literature surrounding the Winstein Rearrangement was just accepted! Way to go Angela! Writing reviews is a LOT of hard work, but it was definitely worth the effort.
Congratulations to Angela, for her contribution to a paper in J. Med. Chem. in collaboration with the Pomerantz and Harki groups here at UMN, as well as the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute!
