应功能有机分子化学国家重点实验室邀请，美国犹他州立大学(Utah State University)化学与生物化学系Alvan C. Hengge教授（系主任）和Vernon D. Parker教授来我校进行学术交流并作学术报告，欢迎感兴趣的师生参加。
报告人： Alvan C. Hengge教授
报告题目： Protein Motions in Catalysis by Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases
报告人： Vernon D. Parker教授
报告题目： Is the Single Transition State Model Appropriate for the Fundamental Reactions of Organic Chemistry? Application of Computation Chemistry
Alvan C. Hengge教授简介：
Professor Hengge obtained at University of Cincinnati his BSc in 1974 and PhD in 1987. He worked as an NIH postdoctoral fellow at University of Wisconsin (1987- 1990) and as an Assistant Scientist at University of Wisconsin-Madison (1991-1996). He then moved to Utah State University, working as Assistant Professor (1996-1999), Associate Professor (2000-2004), and Professor (2004-). He has been the Head of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry since 2009. His research interest is in the areas of mechanistic organic chemistry and biochemistry. Specific areas focus on the molecular details of catalysis, especially of enzymatic reactions, involving phosphoryl transfer, sulfuryl transfer, and acyl transfer reactions. Of particular interest is the question of how mechanisms of enzymatic reactions compare with the analogous uncatalyzed reactions in solution. He has published 8 book chapters and more than 80 papers in prestigious journals.
Vernon D. Parker教授简介：
Professor Parker obtained his BSc at University of Minnesota in 1960 and PhD at Stanford University in 1964. He then worked as Research Chemist and Senior Research Chemist at Dow Chemical Co. from 1964 to 1968. He then moved to University of Copenhagen and took a Lecturer position since 1971. After that, he held the Professor position at University of Lund in 1976 and then at University of Trondheim from 1977 to 1987. He has been a Professor at Utah State University since 1988. Professor Parker has published approximately 330 papers dealing mainly with Physical Organic Chemistry, including the chemistry of ion radicals and the application of electrochemical techni?ques in reactive intermediate chemistry. His most recent work is concerned with the mechanisms of the fundamental reactions in organic chemistry.
