  Virginia Tech Center for Drug Discovery Seminar Series  
(Seminar/Conference)

Dr. Peter Tyler will give a presentation entitled "Synthesis of a Targeted Library of Heparan Sulfate Saccharides that Inhibit the Alzheimer's B-Secretase."

Dr. Peter Tyler received the ranking of Distinguished Scientist in recognition of his design and synthesis of new biologically active carbohydrate molecules, including the discovery of compounds that block T-cell proliferation (a discovery that subsequently brought in more than $6 million in royalty payments to IRL), a new anti-cancer compound that alters important gene expression in tumour cells, and a potential new type of anti-bacterial control that works by blocking bacterial quorum sensing. Peter, who is Programme Leader of the Glycotherapeutics and New Synthetic Methods programmes at IRL, is one of five Science Team Leaders within the Carbohydrate Chemistry group, led by Dr Richard Furneaux. Peter is a dedicated bench chemist and an essential part of the duo that began the Carbohydrate Chemistry group in 1985.
