Seminar Series in Biology Friday, March 24

The Seminar Series in Biology presents:

“Novel Synthetic Analogs of Resveratrol for Potential Therapeutics in Cancer, Obesity and Chronic Inflammation,” presented by Priti Tiwari, PhD, SUNY Oneonta.  Dr. Tiwari is an organic chemical biologist.  Her research interest is in the field of drug discovery and development specifically involving small molecule screening for therapeutics. She has extensively worked on evaluating the effect of resveratrol, a potent biomolecule and its synthetic analogs as anti-cancer, anti-obesity and anti-inflammation drugs using advanced techniques in molecular biology and cell biology.

This seminar is hosted by the Biology Department and will take place 4 pm Friday March 24th in Science I room 121.

About this seminar series: This series is offered several times throughout the semester to provide our student community with opportunities to learn about scientific research and professions. Speakers may include our own department faculty or students, as well as biologists and other professionals from elsewhere. All are welcome.
