Our group published a review “Chemical ecology of marine plankton” in Natural Product Reports summarizing recent research in the chemical ecology of marine pelagic ecosystems. Congratulations Emily, Remy, Nazia and Julia!
Our group attended the 2016 Gordon Research Conference on Marine Natural Products from March 6 – 11. Early career and established researchers from academia, industry, and government gathered to address the discovery and development of natural products from marine ecosystems.
We had two oral and four poster presentations from our lab!
Anne Marie Sweeney-Jones joined our lab as a doctoral graduate student.
She comes with extensive experience in industry-based research with masters degree in Chemistry.
We wish her the very best for academic research journey ahead!
Dr. Serge Lavoie and his previous group published a new paper in Journal of Natural Products on diastereochemical characterization of cytotoxic tetraterpenoids from the oleoresin of Abies balsamea
Marine Slug Steals its Prey’s Chemical Weapons
and Chemical Communication Under the Sea
Drs. Serge Lavoie and Samantha Mascuch joined the lab as Postdocs.
Serge completed his PhD under the supervision of Prof. André Pichette at the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi (Canada).
Samantha completed her PhD under the supervision of Dr. Lena Gerwick at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego (USA).
Congratulations to Zinka Bartolek and Katie Siegel, our undergraduate research students, for winning President’s Undergraduate Research Awards (PURA) (salary) for Spring 2016!
