July 15, 2009
Robin Kinnel, the Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry, attended the 50th anniversary meeting of the American Society of Pharmacognosy in Honolulu, Hawaii, from June 27 - July 1. In support of the celebration of the golden anniversary of the society, which deals with natural products primarily from plants as sources of drugs and drug leads, Kinnel presented a poster titled "The Chemistry of Aster prenanthoides: An Unexpected Encounter with a Polyacetylenic Hydrocarbon." Thomas Irvin '09 co-authored the paper. The scientific work detailed in the poster was largely taken from Irvin's thesis.
