              1. CATALYTIC CO2 REDUCTION BY PALLADIUM
                DECORATED SILICON HYDRIDE NANOSHEETS
                The Ozin Group shows how decorating silicon nonosheets with palladium
                nanoparticles renders the process catalytic, a breakthrough with far
                reaching technological implications.
                Ozin group, Nature Catalysis, 2019
              2. UNUSUAL REARRANGEMENT OF AN
                N-DONOR-FUNCTIONALIZED N-HETEROCYCLIC
                CARBENE LIGAND ON GROUP 8 METALS
                The Song group discovered an unusual rearrangement reaction,where
                the N,C-chelate ligand of a piano-stool Group 8complex isomerizes into
                an N,N-chelate ligand. Mechanistic study suggests the involvement of a
                high-energy metal-alkylidene intermediate.
                Song group, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2018
              3. DYSREGULATION OF MITOCHONDRIAL CLPP
                PROTEASE AS A POTENTIAL STRATEGY TO
                DEVELOP NOVEL ANTICANCERS
                Human mitochondrial ClpP was found to be activated by specific
                acyldepsipeptide compounds causing apoptotic cell death.
                Houry and Batey groups, Cell Chemical Biology, 2018
              4. AMINE HEMILABILITY ENABLES BORON TO
                MECHANISTICALLY RESEMBLE EITHER
                HYDRIDE OR PROTON
                Mechanistic studies of the hemilability of MIDA
                (N-methyliminodiacetic acid) boronates reveal the chameleonic
                behaviour of the BMIDA group.
                Yudin group, Nature Chemistry, 2018
              5. TIPPING CELL SIGNALING PATHWAYS BY SALTS
                Mechanistic insights into allosteric regulation ofthe A2A adenosine
                G protein-coupled receptor byphysiological cations.
                Prosser group, Nature Communications, 2018
              6. COMPETITIVE SELF-ASSEMBLY KINETICS AS A
                ROUTE TO CONTROLLING MORPHOLOGY OF
                CORE-CRYSTALLINE CYLINDRICAL MICELLESS
                One can manipulate the seeded-growth kinetics of block
                copolymer unimers to control the growth sequence of
                unimers and thus the comicelle morphology.
                Winnik group, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2018
              7. INHIBITING MYC BINDING TO THE E-BOX DNA
                MOTIF BY ME47 DECREASES
                TUMOUR XENOGRAFT GROWTH
                The Shin lab's designed protein ME47 decreased tumor growth in
                a triple negative breast cancer mouse model, a type of cancer with
                no effective treatments.
                Shin, Chan & Penn groups, Oncogene, 2017

              Awards:

              Professor Andrei Yudin wins Connaught Innovation Award

              Congratulations to Professor Andrei Yudin who is one of 12 U of T researchers to win a 2019 Connaught Innovation Award. The award acknowledges and supports promising technologies that have strong socio-economic or commercial potential.

              Professor Yudin has been recognized for the development of stable boryl carboxylates, the enabling building blocks for chemical synthesis.

              News and Announcements:

              Eugenia Duodu: STEM education meets social priorities

              Eugenia Duodu (PhD '15) is featured by the Chemical Institute of Canada where she talks about her work with Visions of Science, a non-profit that works to empower youth in low-income communities by engaging them in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

              "Being able to expand our reach in so many communities is something I’ve always wanted to do ?and we’re doing it."


              Darcy Burns: Helium shortage carries serious consequences

              Darcy Burns (PhD '08) talked with the CBC about the latest helium shortage and the consequences that come with it. He explains the wide range of uses for helium, from medical diagnostics to space travel.






              Professor Aspuru-Guzik named one of four new CIFAR chairs in AI

              Four more University of Toronto researchers have been awarded research chairs in artificial intelligence by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR).

              The new U of T chairs, which include Professor Alán Aspuru-Guzik, will join another eight at U of T who were named among the inaugural group last fall and are all associated with the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
