Congratulations to Lauren Andrews for being awarded an Honors Undergraduate Research Fellowship to support her research in Spring 2020.  The short-term goal of Lauren’s research is to make an arabinose intermediate that can be used to make novel derivatives of ipomoeassin F, a natural product strongly inhibiting protein translocation. Biological evaluation of the molecules will provide new structure-activity relationship information for future development of new bioactive chemical entities targeting the Sec61 protein complex.
