Jason Gavenonis
Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Dickinson College
Carlisle, PA
TEACRS Alumnus - 2014

 

 

 

 

I came to the TEACRS Program after completing my PhD in Chemistry at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, MA. I carried out my work with Joshua Kritzer, PhD, Assistant Professor of Chemistry in the College of Arts & Sciences.

I worked to develop new approaches to the inhibition of medically-relevant protein-protein interactions using a combined computational/experimental approach. This resulted in the creation of Loopfinder weblink, a tool for identifying protein-protein interactions mediated by short loops, and the development of stapled-peptide inhibitors of cancer target Hsp90.

As part of the TEACRS Program, I taught Organic Chemistry 1 at UMass - Boston.

I am continuing my career in the Chemistry Department of Dickinson College where I am now an Assistant Professor of Chemistry.
