About this Event

Grab a beverage, join a conversation and chat with the speakers who presented at GlycoNet/ACS Joint Webinar Series. Ask them anything from science-related questions to career-oriented advices!

If you missed their webinars, do not worry — selective presentations will be available on our YouTube Channel (links will be posted when available).

Who you are meeting:

Dr. Theresa M. Reineke

Professor, University of Minnesota

Theresa M. Reineke is a Distinguished McKnight University Professor in the Department of Chemistry at The University of Minnesota. She also holds graduate faculty appointments in the Departments of Chemical Engineering/Materials Science and Pharmaceutics. She received a B.S. Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, a M.S. Degree from Arizona State University, and a Ph.D. from The University of Michigan. She then received a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Fellowship to further her research background at the California Institute of Technology prior to beginning her independent faculty career. Her research group is focused on enabling fundamental and applied technology advancements of polymers in the fields of gene therapy and genome editing, drug delivery, and sustainability. Reineke is also a founding Associate Editor of ACS MacroLetters.

Dr. Jodi Hadden-Perilla

Assistant Professor, University of Delaware

Jodi Hadden-Perilla is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Delaware. Her research group uses integrative modeling and all-atom molecular dynamics simulations to elucidate the mechanisms of biological machines, such as viruses and molecular motors. Dr. Hadden-Perilla completed her doctoral training with Professor Robert J. Woods at the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center at the University of Georgia, and her postdoctoral training with Professor Klaus Schulten at the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She has performed simulations on scales up to millions of atoms to study diverse biomolecular systems, including carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, protein-drug complexes, and multimeric protein assemblies. She has developed software for high-performance biomolecular analysis and visualization, protocols to study molecular interactions, and frameworks for characterizing the structural properties of biological machines. Her outreach efforts involve making the fields of computational chemistry and biophysics more accessible to researchers who are blind.
