Graduate student Elizabeth Drotleff, associate professor of chemistry Joseph Konopelski, and their coworkers have received renewed funding from the American Cancer Society to synthesize a potential anticancer compound in their lab. The compound, called "diazonamide A" comes from a marine organism near the Philippines. Drotleff holds a model of the complex diazonamide A molecule. (Photo: Robert Irion)
