The Department of Chemistry is pleased to welcome Dr. Amanda Garner, an assistant professor at University of Michigan. The seminar will be held on Zoom.

Abstract: The Garner Laboratory is an interdisciplinary group using chemical biology, medicinal chemistry and molecular and cellular biology approaches to investigate the high-risk/high-reward areas of targeting microRNAs, RNA-protein and protein-protein interactions for probe and drug discovery. These efforts are part of our larger interest in studying mechanisms of translational control, which are dysregulated in a number of human diseases yet remain underexplored for therapeutic development. This talk will highlight our research efforts toward this goal with a focus on our work investigating microRNA biology and the regulation of cap-dependent translation.
