Symposium Proposals for the Spring 2016 ACS National Meeting (San Diego) Due Feb 15, 2015

The Organic Division of the American Chemical Society is now accepting proposals for symposia to be presented at the spring 2016 ACS National Meeting (San Diego, March 13-17, 2016). Proposals for symposia in emerging areas of research and/or the core areas of structure, synthesis and mechanism are encouraged as are those having an interdisciplinary focus. Proposals submitted jointly to DOC and other ACS Divisions for a shared symposium are welcome. The Executive Committee is particularly interested in proposals that include speakers from diverse backgrounds and represent a balance of gender, ethnicity and organizations. Support from the Division of up to $4,000 for a half-day symposium is provided.

From C&EN's Organic SCENE:
Immunosuppressants Pack a Powerful Punch
A research team at the Chinese Academy of Sciences has uncovered six new compounds, called phainanoids A–F, notable for a never-before-seen ring system. The researchers found that the bioactive molecules have the potential to knock down the body’s immune system, which could help prevent organ transplant rejection and immunity-associated disorders such as multiple sclerosis: http://cenm.ag/org50
Whether they're picking apart an ancient Chinese herbal medicine or a backwoods home remedy from the southern Appalachians, chemists are interested in identifying bioactive molecules in various cures and determining how they work. Now and again the scientists come across something interesting.
