UChicago Model Class with Professor Scott Snyder

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 9:00 AM until 10:00 AMCentral Daylight Time

Join us for a model class, "Molecules that Changed the World”, with Scott Snyder, Professor and Associate Chair of Chemistry. This class will explore organic molecules isolated from nature that have started wars, extended human life, and dramatically changed the mores of modern society. From penicillin, to capsaicin, to quinine, to progesterone, to Taxol, numerous examples of how organic molecules, and organic chemists, can impact the practice of modern life will be provided.
