Left to Right: Ryan Clark, Graeme Freestone, Erica Campbell, Mark Tichenor and Ben Pratt Academics to Industry San Diego Section
Academics to Industry Event: Introduction to medicinal chemistry designed for chemistry graduate students and post docs. Concept: The younger chemists perspective on industry careers –Graduate programs in chemistry often do not expose students to industry careers –Medicinal chemists need to be able to interface with other scientific disciplines –Younger chemists are able to teach basic concepts in medicinal chemistry to graduate students with the appropriate level of detail (biology concepts focus on “why” not “how”) Presenters: Five younger chemists with diverse experience Intro to Medicinal Chemistry-The Basics (Erica Campbell) Drug Metabolism (Mark Tichenor) Barriers to Exposure (Graeme Freestone) In Vitro Biology (Ben Pratt) The Role of In Vivo Studies in Drug Development (Ryan Clark)
Event Planning Venue: The Scripps Research Institute, UC Los Angeles, UC San Diego Funding: 2011 Innovative Projects Grant, YCC budget Planning committee: Younger Chemists Impact Assessment: Attendance maintained (90-110 students) over five seminars Very engaged, thoughtful questions Feedback forms Asked to return in the future Some students have attended the seminar series twice
