Chemistry MiniSymposium FA09: Bradley Lab
Every fall the faculty in the chemistry department at Drexel present the ongoing work in their lab, mainly for the benefit of the new students. The challenge is to fit a meaningful overview in a 15 minute slot. I think this is a useful exercise and it gives me a recording I can use for more general audiences that matches most people's attention span.
My talk was entitled "The synthesis of Anti-Malarial Compounds using the Ugi reaction and Collaboration using Social Software". The NaH oxidation story is a perfect way to introduce the application of Web2.0 tools to current research.
