The Jeff Johnson Group

The Johnson Group

The Johnson Group recently completed an asymmetric synthesis of the squalene synthesis inhibitor zaragozic acid C. The synthesis featured an interesting controlled oligomerization cascade to establish much of the stereochemically and functionally complex core. More broadly, the work asks if the lessons of polymer synthesis can be applied in the realm of natural product synthesis through the application of tailor-made reagents with the appropriate trigger. This work was highlighted in Science and Chemical and Engineering News.

 

The Jorgenson Group

The Jorgenson Group

The Jorgenson Group is taking high pressure separations to a new level with the analysis of complex mixtures. Current projects in the group focus on identifying differential proteins in yeast cell lysates, separations of intact monoclonal antibodies, and analysis of membrane proteins. The group recently attended the 32nd Int'l Symposium on Capillary Chromatography in Riva del Garda, Italy where Brenna McJury was awarded the third place Pfizer Analytical Research Centre 2008 Best Contribution Award for her poster on two-dimensional differential chromatography.
