Paul A. Wender, the Bergstrom Professor of Chemistryand Professor of Molecular Pharmacology at Stanford University, will speak in W140 Benson Building at 4 p.m. both Monday, Jan. 31 and Tuesday, Feb. 1 as part of the H. Smith Broadbent Lecture.
Wender's first lecture, "Chemistry Medicine Continuum: New Medicinal Leads and New Drug Delivery System," will be directed toward a general audience, covering topics of new anticancer agents and strategies. His Tuesday lecture will be directed more toward chemistry students and professors.
"This is far from a typical department seminar," says Merritt B. Andrus, a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. "This is a great opportunity for students to see firsthand a person who is a major influence in chemistry, in particular the critical area of drug development."
Wender is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a Fellow of the American Association of Arts and Sciences.
Under the direction of Fred E. Ziegler in 1973, Wender earned his doctorate at Yale. Today he is the co-director of the Quantitative Biology Program at The Stanford Medical School.
