USD Hosts University of Texas at Austin Professor for 61st Haines Lecture Nov 6
Anslyn’s research involves the use of physical organic chemistry principles in the development of enzyme mimics and synthetic receptors. Most recently, these receptors have been used to create practical molecular sensors. He has been recognized with a variety of research and teaching awards, including: Izatt-Christensen Award in Supramolecular Chemistry, The Czarnik Award, the ACS Edward Leete Award, the Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, Dreyfus Teacher Scholar Award, and the Jean Holliday Award. He is a co-author on the textbook “Modern Physical Organic Chemistry.”
Anslyn received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from California State University Northridge and his doctorate in organic chemistry at the California Institute of Technology. He was a National Science Foundation post-doctoral fellow at Columbia University between 1987 and 1989, starting his independent career at UT Austin in 1989.
The lecture begins at 6 p.m. in Churchill Haines 118. It is free and open to the public.
The Haines Lecture is sponsored by the USD Department of Chemistry and the Dr. Charles R. Estee Fund. The Haines Lecture was established in 1956 in honor of Arthur Lee Haines, a member of the USD Department of Chemistry for 71 years.
