Synthetic Organic Chemistry to Shed Light on Type II Diabetes and Cancer
On March 16, 2011 Marc d'Alarcao spoke in the University Scholar Series hosted by Provost Gerry Selter at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. Marc d'Alarcao is a Professor in the Chemistry Department at SJSU. In this seminar, he gives a progress report on his work aimed at developing and synthesizing new compounds that are designed to take advantage of this metabolic difference. His hope is that these compounds will be selectively toxic to cancer cells and may provide a new strategy for treating this major threat to human health.
