Chemistry and Biochemistry

B. Mikael Bergdahl
Associate Professor
Program Area: Synthetic Organic, Bioorganic
Research interests: The main focus of my research is the syntheses and subsequent evaluation of biologically active target compounds having effects against various forms of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and infectious diseases. Azaspirene, a member of the pseurotin family, represents a novel and unique anti-cancer agent, extraordinary in its ability to inhibit angiogenesis. Rather than destroying cancer cells via conventional chemotherapy and radiation, azaspirene turns off blood supply signals sent out by the tumor cells. My research is to develop the means to chemically make azaspirene and a library of hybrid pseurotin analogs with potential properties against cancer or arthritis. My research intertwines development of specifically new methodology in organic synthesis and new strategies toward relevant target molecules, e.g.Streptogramin type antibiotics, Epothilone analogs, and Cytotoxic Alkaloids (Micromide).

Chris Harrison
Associate Professor
Program Area: Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry
Research Interests: The development and application of new separation techniques and systems is the primary focus of the research conducted in the Harrison Lab. Our work focuses on the utility and development of dynamic capillary coatings for CE separations. The need for dynamic coatings and an understanding of their function, is paramount in CE separations. The dynamic coatings allow for the control of the electroosmotic flow, a key factor in all CE separations whos magnitude and direction must frequently be altered to achieve a desired separation. We are studying the function of various capillary coatings, with a focus on novel compounds with unique chemistries, such as phosphonium cations. In addition to studying the fundamentals of electroosmotic flow optimization we are applying our knowledge to the separation of analytes including small ions, proteins, nanoparticles and whole blood cells.

Headshot of Matt Anderson

Matt Anderson
Professor/Research Adviser
Research Interests: The ultrafast optics laboratory at SDSU is ready to undertake the experimental endeavors proposed here. The lab includes a Ti:Sapphire oscillator (capable of generating 10-100 fs pulses), a multipass amplifier, computers, electronics, assorted optics and mounts. At 200-300 mW output, the oscillator permits a range of experiments without amplification. There are two operational pulse shapers currently in the lab. The first is a temporal pulse shaper. It is a grating-based 4f system using a liquid crystal spatial light modulator (SLM) consisting of two 128 arrays sandwiched between polarizers (Cambridge Research SLM-256). This device can shape both the amplitude and phase of our femtosecond pulses. The outgoing temporal structure can be conveniently monitored using a SPIDER pulse characterization apparatus. For a SPIDER review, see [Anderson LPL]. With this system we have demonstrated, for example, the ability to compress complicated pulses back to the transform limit in a single step (an experiment that was highlighted in Optics & Photonics News’ “Highlights from the year in Optics”) [Anderson OPN].

Program Area: Experimental Psychopathology (emphasis on anxiety disorders)
Research Interests: Specifically, he is interested in studying information-processing biases that may lead to the maintenance, and possibly the development of, anxiety disorders. To this end, he has used various paradigms that examine cognitive disturbances (e.g., attentional bias, implicit and explicit memory bias, interpretation bias) in anxious patients and normal individuals with elevated trait anxiety. This research has culminated in a theory of social anxiety that focuses on abnormalities in inhibition and activation of threat-relevant information in these individuals
