Hendrik Luesch, Ph.D., a professor and chair of medicinal chemistry and the Debbie and Sylvia DeSantis Chair in Natural Products Drug Discovery and Development, received the Golden Medal Award for his presentation at the 2nd International Conference on Herbal and Traditional Medicine.
The researchers found a more efficient way to harvest the UV-absorbing amino acid known as shinorine, which marine organisms like cyanobacteria and macroalgae produce.
Led by principal investigator, Rob Huigens, Ph.D., an assistant professor of medicinal chemistry, the grant aims to establish a drug discovery pipeline to generate and identify new small molecules that possess anticancer activities.
Known as the Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award, the grant will fund several of Huigens’ research projects, including efforts to develop compounds that will eliminate bacterial biofilm-associated infections.
With the funding from the Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award, Ding aims to access and expand chemical diversity of microbes through the use of new, innovative strategies.
A UF College of Pharmacy researcher team led by Dr. Hendrik Luesch recently developed a novel molecule based on marine cyanobacteria, Apra S10, to target pancreatic cancer cells.
Luesch presented on the expanding chemical space for drug discovery at the conference in Kuwait City.
