Molecular tools may streamline drug design

Posted: August 23rd, 2014


HER FLUORESCENT SUMMER – Lake Superior State University forensic chemistry senior Alyssa Ellsworth prepares fluorescent heterocycles under a fume hood as part of a research project being supervised by LSSU chemistry professor Adam Mosey. Mosey employed students this past summer on original research into whether unique organic molecules - called heterocycles - may be useful in modeling drug interactions. The study also investigated fluorescent markers that might rapidly detect off-target drug interactions. Mosey's work is supported by a $35,000 grant from the Research Corporation for Scientific Advancement, that runs through June 2016. Ellsworth is from Traverse City, Mich. Run a Web search on "LSSU physical sciences" to read about those areas of study at Lake State. (LSSU/John Shibley)

HIS HETEROCYCLIC SUMMER – Lake Superior State University environmental chemistry senior Chris Gravatt monitors the concentration of a purified amide as part of a research project being supervised by LSSU chemistry professor Adam Mosey. Mosey employed students this past summer on original research into whether unique organic molecules - called heterocycles - might be useful in modeling drug interactions. The project is supported by a $35,000 grant from the Research Corporation from Scientific Advancement, and runs through June 2016. Gravatt is from Escanaba, Mich.
