Exciting news: our current lab members, Jason, JJ, and Tae, published their work on the synthesis of 4-bromo-2,3-dihydrofurans in Chemical Science. Additionally, a collaborative work between the Howell and the Cravatt groups on ABHD17 inhibition studies in Nature Chemical Biology has been published. Congratulations!
Congratulations to Robert “Bobby” Gilbert for winning a Dr. Charles Waring Chemistry Scholarship. He is working this summer on the synthesis of glycopshingolipids that activate iNKT cells.
Exciting news: our current group member, Pascal, published his work on chemical probe development in ChemBioChem. Additionally, our former group member, Santosh, published an article in ACS Chemical Biology about his study on the potent stimulation of iNKT cells and anti-tumor immunity in humanized mouse model by modified KRN7000. Congratulations, guys!
