Blog #4: Results and Reflections

This past semester has proved to be an excellent learning experience with continued efforts toward testing our compounds. After redirecting my research toward testing, I have familiarized myself with a whole new area of my research. In working with Dr. Yarlett, we were able to devise and experiment, testing my compounds on human tumor cells. […]

Blog Post #3

With continued efforts toward our research, this past month has brought about several advances and setbacks as well. As we continued synthesis of our compounds, we received unfortunate news regarding equipment at our collaborating laboratory. Until recently, finished compounds would have been sent out to Dr. Geoffrey Abbott of UC Irvine, to be tested against […]

Now that we are well in to the semester, Dr. Rizzo and I have been making a lot of progress with our synthesis. As mentioned in the prior post, our objective is to synthesize a variety of novel quaternary ammonium compounds that utlize a,w-diols, dihalides, polyethers, and naturally derived glycols covalently bound to 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane, otherwise […]

My name is Sophia Miotto. I am a Biochemistry major and a senior here at Pace University. Last spring, I began my research under my mentor, Dr. Jaimelee Rizzo, researching novel compounds that target potassium ion channels. The focus of research was the synthesis of novel therapeutic drugs to combat neuromuscular disorders. During our research, […]
