Internal Symposium at CCIQS – 2014 edition

Once again as every year we celebrate our internal symposium here at CCIQS, and like every year, my students presented some of their progress with their research projects. This time, three students, from three different levels, present posters regarding some of the data they’ve obtained.

María Eugenia ‘Maru’ Sandoval presented a poster regarding the molecular dynamics simulations performed for the drug Imatinb and a family of calix- and thia-calix[n]arenes as published here and reported in this blog here. ‘Maru’ is now a first year grad student at the National University, UNAM, after spending a year working for a pharmaceutical company. Her research in the realm of photosynthesis has only begun recently, that is why we had to rely on some other data.

Luis Enrique Aguilar is researching cation-π interactions within the aromatic cavities of calix[n]arenes in order to find suitable leads among these, our favorite macrocyles, for designing extraction agents of heavy (toxic) metals. Luis Enrique is an undergrad student here at the State University who should finish this year and has shown some interest (threatened us) in writing his dissertation thesis in our research group.

Monserrat Enriquez is a PhD student at CINVESTAV under the joint supervision of Dr. Eddie López-Honorato and myself (Dr. Eddie is her principal advisor), her research project involves both theoretical calculations and synthesis of the leads for extraction agents for several Arsenic species. For the time being, Monserrat is here with us, far from her home on the north side of the country, for this semester in which we have to finish with the theoretical section of her work. Besides her research concerning calixarenes she is also running calculations on the interactions between graphene oxide and the aforementioned As species. We are very excited about working with such a complex yet simple material that has such an exciting electronic structure.

This symposium is always interesting and important in bringing our research projects closer to all the comunity of this center. And since symposium comes from the Greek meaning ‘drinking together‘, then lets raise our glasses and toast for the data to come!

Cheers!

Theoretical chemist in his early thirties, in love with life and deeply in love with his woman. I love science, baseball, literature, movies (perhaps even in that order). I'm passionate about food and lately wines have become a major hobby. In a nutshell I'm filled with regrets but also with hope, and that is called "living".

  1. Greetings from California! I’m bored to death at work
    so I decided to browse youhr website on my iphone during lunch break.
    I really like the info you present here aand can’t wait to ttake a look when I get home.
    I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded

  6. When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
    now on each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.

    Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me
    from that service? Thanks a lot!

  7. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours today, but I by no means found any fascinating
    article like yours. It’s pretty price enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you
    did, the web can be a lot more useful than ever before.

  8. Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so
    I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  9. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with
    Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog
    to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very
    good gains. If you know of any please share. Thank
    you!

  10. I’m not sure why but this web site is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my
    end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  11. I just couldn’t go away your web site before suggesting that I extremely
    enjoyed the usual info a person provide to your guests? Is gonna be again incessantly in order
    to inspect new posts

  12. Good day! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this
    post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this.
    I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.
    Thank you for sharing!
