A UF College of Pharmacy researcher team led by Dr. Hendrik Luesch recently developed a novel molecule based on marine cyanobacteria, Apra S10, to target pancreatic cancer cells.
With the funding from the Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award, Ding aims to access and expand chemical diversity of microbes through the use of new, innovative strategies.
Dr. Cui joins the Medicinal Chemistry department as an assistant professor. She was previously at the University of New Mexico and the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center. Her research explores the biochemical activities of carbohydrate processing enzymes involved in cancer progression and metastasis, thereby guiding the development of therapeutic and diagnostic molecules or tools for various types of cancers.
Known as the Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award, the grant will fund several of Huigens’ research projects, including efforts to develop compounds that will eliminate bacterial biofilm-associated infections.
Organic farmers can use the natural chemicals to ward off weeds and conventional farmers can use them on weeds that grow resistant to traditional, synthetic herbicides.
