DePaul University and Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS) have an agreement that incorporates many different aspects, including supporting collaborative research. We recently had a joint research retreat (Sept 16th) at which several research groups presented on their collaborative work between DePaul and Rosalind Franklin. There were many great talks and posters covering a wide variety of fields.
From our own department, Dr. Jin is collaborating with faculty at RFUMS researchers on studying interactions of small molecules with proteins towards understanding mitochondrial behavior. Dr. Karver is collaborating with RFUMS to examine the biological activity of several of the compounds she works with. Dr. Grice is working with groups at RFUMS to develop novel metal-based drugs. The hope is that these new collaborations will help enrich our students’ experiences and lead to longer, ongoing collaborative projects.
You can also ask Dr. Jin, Dr. Karver, and Dr. Grice about their RFUMS collaborations at the Department of Chemistry Meet and Greet tomorrow, Tuesday Oct 4th, in McGowan South 107 from 11:30am to 1:00pm.r
