Event Type:  Lecture (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Integrating Chemical and Biological Profiling for the Functional Annotation of Complex Natural Product Mixtures
Description:  The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) presents the Integrative Medicine Research Lecture Series. The series provides overviews of the current state of research and practice involving complementary health approaches and explores perspectives on the emerging discipline of integrative medicine.

Roger Linington, Ph.D., is associate professor in the Department of Chemistry at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia and Canada Research Chair in High-Throughput Screening and Chemical Biology. He explores the general areas of natural product drug development and natural products as chemical genetic tools. His research program has focused heavily on the development of new multi-parametric screening tools for the early prediction of compound modes of action from primary screening data, and the development of new, more efficient compound isolation and structure elucidation methods.

Dr. Linington’s laboratory is developing new methods for the unbiased chemical characterization of natural product mixtures as part of a collaborative program funded by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health and the Office of Dietary Supplements. They are also creating new informatics tools to relate the presence or absence of specific metabolites to observations of biological phenotypes in profiling assays. Together, these systems are providing a broad perspective on the biological roles of all metabolites in complex samples.

During this lecture, Dr. Linington will discuss the challenges of identifying the active components within complex mixtures of natural products and understanding their modes of action. Thanks to recent technological developments in analytical chemistry and high-content screening, researchers have new opportunities to address tough questions posed by natural product profiling. Dr. Linington will share perspective on potential solutions for the unbiased chemical characterization of complex natural product mixtures,
