主讲人：Suzanne A. Blum 教授
题 目：Organic Chemistry at the Single-Molecule Level
Suzanne A. Blumgraduated from the University of California, Berkeley, working under the supervision ofBergman, R. G. After a postdoctoral stay at the National Institutes of Health in2004-2006, she returned to Department of chemistry at University of California, Irvine, where she was elected as a professor in 2017. She has published over 50 articles and filed two patents in the field of organic chemistry of metals. In 2013, she wasselected as Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow. She has also been awarded lots of honors, including NSF (National Science Foundation) CAREER Award (2008), Thieme Synlett/Synthesis Journal Award (2009),Japan Society for Promotion of Science Fellowship (2013),Elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (2017).Her work focuses on the total synthesis of natural biologically-active products like anticancer agents, antibiotics,anti-inflammatoriesor products acting on the central nervous system. She has also conducted research on free-radical reactions andphotochemicalreactions. She pioneers new mechanisms for transition-metal reactivity with synthetic applications and aims to change the way people study chemical reactions by developing microscopy techniques to study mechanisms and catalysis.
