Samantha Greeley has decided to assist the Ronning lab in their efforts to develop new drugs to treat TB. Welcome to the lab, Samantha!
Prof. Ronning and Mike Banco were interviewed today about the recent PNAS paper and working with NASA to grow protein crystals on the International Space Station. As soon as we have links to the video, I will post them.
A link to the UToledo press release is here.
NBC 24 Ran a story about the research and has a video.
Chris' paper describing two new Antigen 85C structures modified by covalent inhibitors has been accepted at ACS Infectious Diseases. This was in collaboration with Jerry Parks at Oak Ridge National Lab and Steve Sucheck at Toledo. Well done Chris.
Congratulations to Chris Goins and our collaborators in the Sucheck lab. Our paper describing inhibition and anti-tuberculosis activity of ebselen derivatives was published in the Journal of Organic Chemistry.
Celine has been accepted for the Harvard Stem Cell Institute Internship Program this summer. Congratulations Celine and enjoy Boston.
The Ronning lab celebrated the coming of winter with their annual Wintersolstifest gathering. We ate food from around the world.
Congratulations to Mike Banco. His paper describing 4 neutron/X-ray co-refined crystal structures of the Helicobacter pylori methylthioadenosine nucleosidase was accepted by PNAS and is now available on the PNAS website. We observed some intriguing hydrogen bonding and protonation patterns in these structures. It turned out to be quite an interesting story. Paper.
The Ronning lab welcomes new graduate students, Gwendal and Thanuja, to the lab. May your pipettors always be active and your eyes always vigilant for unexpected difference density.
Celine Schreidah received a FYSRE award to do undergraduate research in the lab this summer. Welcome to the lab Celine. We are excited to have you join us.
