Research Abstract
We introduced sulfur-triazole exchange (SuTEx) chemistry as a new electrophile for covalent modification of tyrosine residues across thousands of functional protein binding sites. We are exploring whether SuTEx chemistry can be applied for fragment-based ligand discovery to target enzymatic function and disruption of protein-protein and protein-nucleotide interactions. We are also interested in testing the application of SuTEx chemistry for discovery of novel post-translational modifications on tyrosine residues on a proteome-wide scale. About
Dr. Hsu’s research program applies the principles of chemistry and chemical biology to study fundamental protein biology. A current focus is to study proteins involved in metabolism of fats (i.e. lipids) because lipids are important chemical signals for basic communication in bi

Invitation to Present at the Undergraduate Research Symposium (OURS)

The Online Undergraduate Research Symposium (OURS) is inviting undergraduates of all majors to present their work virtually! The OURS is replacing UC San Diego’s signature Undergraduate Research Conference and will be open to a more inclusive group of students with research experience. The OURS will go live on Thursday May 28, with two livestreamed events: an undergraduate round table discussion via Zoom, and the presentation of the annual Outstanding Mentor Award. Here are some details about the event:

  • Faculty nominations are not required; students may register and submit their presentations directly via the registration forms linked on the OURS website. They must, however, have at least one quarter of experience conducting research either through a recognized UC San Diego program (e.g. TRELS, Academic Internship Program, Independent Study 199, etc.) or with a faculty mentor.
  • Recently graduated students may submit presentations for consideration as long as they graduated no earlier than Fall 2019. Additionally, the findings students present must be from research they conducted as undergraduates between June 2019 and this Spring Quarter.
  • Presentations will be in the format of a 3-5 minute video “elevator pitch,” with the option to also submit a PDF poster or paper.
  • All video presentations will be posted publicly on a virtual forum for 1 month, after which they will become private and accessible only with a UC San Diego email address. We ask all students to confirm with their mentors that none of their presentations contain proprietary information.
  • The deadline to submit a presentation video is May 16.

For more details on how to apply, please visit our website. We look forward to your submissions!

Housing Insecurity Survey – Please Support Undergraduate Research Apprentices

We are a graduate and undergraduate student research team at UC San Diego that is conducting research on housing insecurity and student success. As a student attending UC San Diego, you are being asked to participate in an online survey that has been designed to understand the ways in which housing impacts student health, sense of self and academic achievement. If you choose to participate in this survey, please click on the link below. Participation is anonymous and will last approximately 10 minutes. Before you begin the survey, you will read a brief consent form. Survey questions will include questions around rental costs, location of off-campus housing, financial burdens, mental health, faculty awareness and grades. 

While there is no direct benefit to you for participating in this study, the research may help the investigators better understand the ways in which housing insecurity impacts students in San Diego: information that we are planning to share with students, faculty and administrators at our school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Stacey Livingstone at sbliving@ucsd.edu or at 619-417-4350.

Thank you!

Translational Medicine Day

Hello all! UCSD BMES is proud to present the sixth annual Translational Medicine Day (TMD)! TMD is a conference style event dedicated towards educating and inspiring students about the field of translational medicine
What is translational medicine, you may ask? It’s the process by which cutting-edge research that happens here at UCSD and other research campuses is turned into therapies, drugs, and devices that directly impact patients on the clinical side of medicine. It is a multidisciplinary field that integrates biology, chemistry, engineering, and bioethics, as well as accounting for industry and government requirements alongside academia.
At our event, our MD/PhD panel, which addresses questions for students aspiring to grad/med school or even beyond, as well as how they can use their degree to improve medicine on the clinical side. Representatives from various medical device companies, such as AVACEN, Medtronic, and Phillips, will also be available at our Industry Demonstrations session, giving you the opportunity to interact with advanced medical products and network with them (and maybe even score that elusive internship!)
In addition, our Speaker Sessions are seminar-style presentations that detail what’s being done on the forefront of translational medicine. Finally, our Ethics Panel this year focuses on the topic of AI in Healthcare: an emerging application of computer science in medicine — laced with both concern and considerable potential — for fields such as diagnostics, telemedicine, medical screening, and patient-clinic interaction.
TMD is happening on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, from 2:00 – 7:00 PM at the Medical Education and Telemedicine (MET) Building! Attached is a schedule that outlines our event, including the times for sections of the event you may be interested in. We highly encourage any and all to come, regardless of major or background! Admission is free, but to get a headcount of how many people are attending, we ask that you please RSVP on Eventbrite at the link here: tmd-2020.eventbrite.com.
For more information, and a preview of the many presenters at TMD 2020, check out our Facebook page herehttps://www.facebook.com/events/823466148125291/
Thank you for your time, and we hope to see you there!

Master of Microbial Biotechnology program at NC State University

The MMB is a two-year, non-thesis degree and as a Professional Science Master’s, the MMB offers students a unique combination of science and business courses in preparation for careers in the biotech industry. 

NC State is uniquely located 17 miles from Research Triangle Park. As a part of the MMB program, students work directly with our internationally recognized industry partners in RTP, where over 550 life-sciences companies comprise the fourth-largest biotech hub in the nation. Throughout three 10-week practicum projects and a 160-hour summer internship, our students work directly with host companies and gain invaluable, hands-on industry experience.

The practicum projects are developed by the host companies and are designed to give students real world, hands-on experiences. Not only does this help students master skills that make them career-ready, but they get to sample the many opportunities the biotech industry has to offer – which results in high career satisfaction. 

The MMB program also emphasizes professional skill development. Students are presented with many opportunities to work on written and verbal communication, interview techniques, and resume development.
