On September 9, Dr. Charles Dann passed by our chemistry amphitheater here at Andrews University to tell us a little bit about Structure Based Design: Human Folate Receptors and Cancer.
Once again, I must admit I felt as if I would be blown away by this topic. After I picking up a few handouts from the back of the room, Dr. Dann began his presentation on Folates and cancer. He mentioned that the goal of his research was to derive anti-folates that could potentially treat diseases. He also mentioned that anti folates were used in treatments of leprosy.
