Story

Open science chemistry student @ Sydney Uni
Introduction
I'm a chemistry student in the Todd group at the University of Sydney. My research is on the development of a catalytic enantioselective oxa-Pictet-Spengler reaction.

I am an open scientist. I spend most days in the lab but my lab notebook (with all the data that I collect including "failures") is freely available to anyone with access to the internet. UPDATE: I've got a new electronic lab notebook. Still trying to sort out the format, but here some of the data are here: http://dx.doi.org/10.6070/H4BR8Q53.

The open science method means that anyone can contribute to what I'm trying to achieve. Contribution can be anything from feedback in the form of comments, suggestions or questions to setting up an account on the lab notebook and carrying out related experiments.

Feedback is fantastic in any shape or form. Everybody loves getting feedback. There is space to submit comments at the end of every lab notebook post and on my site. Google+ and Twitter are also winners.

(I work in the same lab as the +OpenSourceMalaria Sydney folks, but obviously my project is different).

Next meeting of +Open Source Malaria is in 8.5 hours. Agenda linked below. To come along go here: http://webconf.ucc.usyd.edu.au/osm24thnov14/ at these times: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meetingdetails.html?year=2014&month=11&day=24&hour=8&min=30&sec=0&p1=224&p2=179&p3=1233&p4=87&p5=176&p6=240&iv=1800
Everyone welcome. We'll be talking about the latest data obtained (potency of latest analogs, and their metabolic clearance data) and then planning which molecules are next. Updates from several current participants are expected.
Logistics: Meeting is virtual at this online location and at these times. Will last 1 hour max. The meeting will be recorded and the recording posted unedited on YouTube - participants are live and on the record. Context: OSM is an "open source" drug discovery project. Anyone can participate in ...

A foil igloo filled with hot solvent in a "warm-up post" as I try and get back into regular chemistry broadcasting.

I was on Friday (10.6070/H4BK199J). Still trying to sort out logistics.

Goo that crystallises under a high vacuum is fantasmical. The flask was quite warm afterwards. 

The material is crude phenylglycinol that I prepared by reducing phenylglycine with lithium aluminium hydride.

watching this with "Grace" by Apocalyptica playing in the background strangely fit. that is a weird phenomenon that it was still boiling under normal conditions

Looking forward to taking part in this 3-day +The Rockefeller Foundation - sponsored meeting on whether we can create a new open source pharmaceutical industry. About 23 delegates, including +Open Source Malaria +Osddlinux CSIROSDD +Open Society Foundations +John Wilbanks +zakir thomas . If interested, follow https://twitter.com/OSPInfo and watch for #opensourcepharma My personal aim: a roadmap of how a public domain compound, arising from a public research process, can become a medicine that reaches the maximum number of relevant patients.
The Open Source Pharma event at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center is the first formal conference about developing a global open source pharma ecosystem. The goal of the attendees is to launch concrete initiatives to discover, develop, and commercialize medicines for the most pressing ...

The unseen part of science

Research doesn't always go to plan. Accidents do occasionally happen. Fortunately I recovered the 2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)ethanol that splattered the floor of my fumehood with minimal loss of material.

I remember this moment quite clearly. I was tired and stressed. But, research needs to be done! So, following a moment of profuse frustration coupled with a series of expletives, I manned-up, kept (reasonably) calm. And carried on.

Very excited to launch OSM Series 4. Lots of data that has come from the private sector and is now in the public domain. Very promising set, ripe for further investigation.

See also OSM blog post about this: http://malaria.ourexperiment.org/uri/405

If you're a med chemist and you want to go straight to the detail, read the briefing document: http://malaria.ourexperiment.org/uri/404 - this will be used as a starting point to plan the first 10 compounds for the consortium to make.
This week, MMV hands the triazolopyrazines and their key data over to Dr Mat Todd at the University of Sydney, where research on these potential antimalarials will continue for all the world to see as part of the Open Source Malaria project. The triazolopyrazines have already demonstrated ...

The credit belongs to the man in the arena.

I'm getting lost in this site. Some really nice, motivating, pick-me-up comics.
