2017- Tim Newhouse at Science on Saturdays

On April 1st, Tim Newhouse will present “Not for Fools: Organic Synthesis of Natural Products.” Making the materials and therapeutics of the future, synthetic chemists synthesize and discover new molecules by twisting bonds and stereocenters at their will. Come join us to hear learn from Prof. Tim Newhouse how the real Walter Whites of the world manipulate organic molecules to get rich. 

Time: Demonstrations by Synapse of Yale Scientific Magazine from 10am - 11am; Talk from 11am - noon. 

Location: Sterling Chemistry Laboratory, 225 Prospect Street
Directions & Parking: Sterling Chemistry Lab is the building on the left of the driveway at 225 Prospect. Proceed into the main entrance and up the main staircase. Parking will be available on the street along Prospect, at the Yale Whale Ice Rink, and in Lot 16 at the corner of Whitney & Humphrey.

About Tim Newhouse: Tim was born in New Hampshire and grew up in northern New England.  He received his B.A. in Chemistry from Colby College (2005) in Waterville, ME, where he was mentored by Prof. Dasan M. Thamattoor.  After moving to La Jolla, CA, he completed his Ph.D. at The Scripps Research Institute with Prof. Phil S. Baran (2010).  During his time at Scripps, he also worked in the laboratories of Prof. Donna G. Blackmond.  He then returned to the east coast for postdoctoral studies with Prof. E.J. Corey at Harvard University.  As of 2013, he is an Assistant Professor at Yale University in the Department of Chemistry.  The Newhouse Lab at Yale focuses its efforts on the development of new synthetic methods to rapidly acquire these structurally complex small molecules. These substances will be exploited for a variety of purposes by collaborating with neuroscientists.
