Efforts Towards the Total Synthesis of Cyclocitrinol

Presented by Carolyn Wei (Leighton Group)

Friday, August 28, 2015 at 2:00pm

Room 209 Havemeyer

Natural products featuring bridged seven- and eight-membered ring systems are relatively rare in nature; however, due to their interesting biological activity, they are commonly found in pharmaceuticals. Despite their importance, no general method to access bicyclic ring systems exists, thus the de novo synthesis of these complex molecules is often a significant challenge. It was with this in mind that we launched our efforts towards the first total synthesis of cyclocitrinol, a unique steroid with a fused ring system possessing a rare bicyclo[4.4.1]undec-7,10-diene A/B ring with a bridgehead double bond. Using knowledge gained from previous model studies of a strain-accelerated tandem Ireland-Claisen/Cope rearrangement to assemble the ABC tricyclic core, two approaches towards the completion of the molecule were explored: 1) an Ireland-Claisen/Cope/Claisen rearrangement followed by RCM and 2) a 1,3-allylic transposition/RCM. Of these approaches, the later, led to the completion of the ABCD tetracyclic core and installation of the fully elaborated C17 side-chain.

COPING at FringeNYC directed by Jacob Marx Rice CC'12

Columbia alum Jacob Marx Rice (CC '12) returns to the New York International Fringe Festival with his newest play, Coping, a pitch black comedy about love, family and the absurdity of death.

Coping follows the aftermath of 25-year-old ConnorÂ’s suicide, as his friends and loved ones try to piece together the smoking remains of his life. His girlfriend, Sarah, struggles with the guilt of inadvertently handing Connor the means to kill himself. His sister, Jessica, attempts to control every detail of the funeral and punish anyone who questions her, while her girlfriend plays peacemaker. His roommate, Lucas, wanders through life in a stoned haze to avoid the horror of what has happened. As each of them tries desperately to make things right, place blame, and confront their own battles with mental illness, they must find a way to come together and accept the unacceptable, or destroy the memory of the one person they all loved.

AgCenter Seminar: Africa Soil Information Service - Open Data Science for Agricultural Landscapes

Date:
Wednesday, September 2, 2015 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Location:
Columbia University, Lamont Campus, Gary C. Comer Geochemistry Building, First Floor Seminar Room

Contact:
AgCenter, arose@ei.columbia.edu

Event Description:
Speaker: Markus Walsh, Senior Research Scientist, Ecosystems and Landscape Ecology, Agriculture and Food Security Center (AgCenter), The Earth Institute, Columbia University

The Earth Institute's Agriculture and Food Security Center (AgCenter) presents Africa Soil Information Service: Open Data Science for Agricultural Landscapes, a seminar with Markus Walsh, Senior Research Scientist, Ecosystems and Landscape Ecology, Agriculture and Food Security Center (AgCenter), The Earth Institute, Columbia University.  Open to the public.

Landscape data and information, just like high quality seed and fertilizer, represent a critical production input for Africa’s rural communities, with potentially high returns on investment. This 30 minute presentation examines recent advances in generating agriculturally relevant information using open data science, agile software development and reproducible research approaches. The examples presented cover topics including: crowd sourcing of land cover observations, ground and UAV data collections, digital soil mapping and low-cost, high performance computing solutions for generating near-real-time predictions about the condition and changes of the agricultural landscapes of Africa.

Markus Walsh is based at the Selian Agricultural Research Institute in Arusha, Tanzania, where he is the science coordinator for the Africa Soil Information Service. Since joining the Earth Institute, his research has focused on developing operational tools for diagnosis, mapping and monitoring of the ecological condition of African landscapes with an emphasis on the application of IT and data science in agriculture. Raised in Kenya, Markus has over 25 years of experience in ecosystems and landscape ecology research in Africa. Markus was a senior research scientist at the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) from 1997-2007, where he led research on land degradation assessment, monitoring and rehabilitation in the Lake Victoria Basin, based in Kisumu, Kenya.
