Join us in welcoming SOU Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Dr. Greg Smith, as he discusses key enzymes in tuberculosis.
In the first part of this talk, Greg will discuss the current state of tuberculosis infections worldwide, recent advances in treatment, and the emerging challenges of multi-drug resistant (MDR) and extreme-drug resistant (XDR) tuberculosis. In the second part, Greg highlights several research projects currently ongoing in his lab, involving simulations of key enzymes found in tuberculosis, their functions, and their prospects as potential tuberculosis targets. Come join us and learn about tuberculosis and how simulations can help us understand how enzymes work.
Greg Smith joined the SOU chemistry department in 2017. He teaches physical chemistry, computational methods for scientists, and courses in the general chemistry lecture and lab sequence. Greg’s research interests center on using computer simulations to understand how enzymes work.
