Members of Sheila David’s Laboratory at UC Davis attended the Chemical Biology in the Bay Area (CBBA) Day on June 1st, 2019, which was hosted by UCSF in San Francisco. This event brought in graduate student presenters from UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, UC Berkeley, and UCSF. The keynote speaker was Anthony Ogawa from Merck. Merve Demir from our lab presented a research poster titled, “Elucidating Additional Features of 8-Oxo-guanine Recognition and Adenine Excision Mechanism by the DNA Glycosylase MutY.” The speakers were consistently excellent throughout the day, touching on a broad range of topics within the wide world of chemical biology. We all had a great time. Cheers to all of the presenters and volunteers that helped run the conference!
Many congratulations to our graduate students! Elizabeth Lotsof won the Raymon M. Keefer Fellowship which is awarded to graduate students pursing a Ph.D. in Chemistry.…
Congratulations to our R. Bryan Miller Symposium 2021 Award Winners! Thank you for your dedication to excellence!

- To battle climate change, scientists tap into carbon-hungry microorganisms for clues November 29, 2022Scientists have demonstrated a new technique, modeled after a metabolic process found in some bacteria, to convert carbon dioxide into solar fuels through artificial photosynthesis.
- Cancer scientist finds dramatic rise in anal cancer in Midwest and Southeast US November 29, 2022Researchers found that across the U.S., anal cancer incidence and mortality rates increased 1.5-fold in men and women over 50 years old. However, the most prominent increase -- more than two-fold -- occurred among people over 50 years of age living in the Midwestern and Southeastern states.
- What ancient underwater food webs can tell us about the future of climate change November 28, 2022Have humans wreaked too much havoc on marine life to halt damage? A new analysis challenges the idea that ocean ecosystems have barely changed over millions of years, pointing scientists down a new path on conservation efforts and policy.
- Organizing nanoparticles into pinwheel shapes offers new twist on engineered materials November 28, 2022Researchers have developed a new strategy to help build materials with unique optical, magnetic, electronic and catalytic properties. These pinwheel-shaped structures self-assemble from nanoparticles and exhibit a characteristic called chirality -- one of nature's strategies to build complexity into structures at all scales, from molecules to galaxies.
- The entanglement advantage November 28, 2022Researchers have demonstrated a way to entangle atoms to create a network of atomic clocks and accelerometers. The method has resulted in greater precision in measuring time and acceleration.
