    VICB Seminar, Ryan Altman, 'Decarboxylative Fluoroalkylation and Fluorinated Peptidomimetic Biological Probes'

      The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology (VICB) presents Dr. Ryan Altman, University of Kansas: "Decarboxylative Fluoroalkylation and Fluorinated Peptidomimetic Biological Probes"

    Research Summary:
    · New synthetic methods allow access to fluorinated substructures for medicinal chemistry and chemical biology.
    · Fluoroalkenes have unique physicochemical properties that can be exploited for synthetic and medicinal chemistry.
    · Fluorinated peptidomimetics stabilize and improve blood-brain-barrier permeability of endogenous neuropeptides.
