Prof. Glazer to speak at the International Symposium on Photopharmacology
Prof. Edith (Phoebe) Glazer has been invited to present the work of her research group at the International Symposium on Photopharmacology at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. The symposium, organized by Prof. Wiktor Szymanski, will focus on three areas: 1) Approaches used to regulate drug activity with light: photoactive metal complexes, photocaged drugs and photoswitchable compounds; 2) New tools, mainly the recently reported visible- and red-light responsive molecular photoswitches; 3) Therapeutic targets for photopharmacology, with recent examples of potential candidates. The symposium features a keynote lecture from Prof. Ben Feringa, the winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
