The Laboratory for Evaluation of Pharmacological Agents in Remediation of Disease (LEoPARD) at Colorado Mesa University has been awarded $4,800 in internal funds for individual and collaborative projects. Awards were disseminated via the Faculty Professional Development Fund (FPDP), an annual program at CMU established for projects facilitating the scholarly and creative development of faculty members.
The FPDF will be used to support two projects:
- Investigation into Catechol Modulation of Enzymes (InCoME): An assessment of natural and synthetic compounds that contain catechol and guaiacol moieties, and their inhibitory or activatory effects on disease-linked enzymes.
- Colorimetric Nanostructures for Protein Kinase Trials (CorNr PoKeT): Development of nanomaterials that can be used for assaying protein kinase activity, without the need for hazardous radioisotopes or expensive antibodies. This is a collaborative project with the Lohse research group at CMU.
Thank you to Academic Affairs for the support!
