  • Devin Iimoto | Whittier College
    attended Carleton College in Minnesota where he had the opportunity to learn from some of the finest faculty in the country about literature and history but most importantly about chemistry and biology which involved solving puzzle like problems synthesizing compounds in the laboratory and learning that to understand living systems and diseases of those systems one would need to explore the compounds of life He continued his education in graduate school at UC San Diego in the field of biochemistry Afterwards he took a postdoctoral position in Dr Tsunao Saitoh s laboratory in the Department of Neuroscience analyzing compounds found in the brains of people with Alzheimer s Disease Iimoto s Curriculum Vitae Recent posters co authored with undergraduate students Josh Smith Devin Iimoto Improved Method for Purifying Fibrolase for Potential Use in Treatment of Myocardial Infarctions and Strokes American Chemical Society National Meeting Anaheim CA March 29 2011 Poster Will Jackson Michael Galbreath Andrés Villalpando Ralph Isovitsch Devin Iimoto Potentially Preventing Cancer with the Inhibition of Cytocrome P4501A1 by Various Stilbenes and Pyrroles American Chemical Society National Meeting Anaheim CA March 29 2011 Poster Joshua Smith Sarah Lamb Devin Iimoto Quantifying Fibrolase Using A Widely Available Technique Polyacrylamide Gel Electrophoresis American Chemical Society National Meeting San Francisco CA March 23 2010 Poster Ken Irvine Devin Iimoto Ralph Isovitsch Antibiotic Activity of Echinacea Herb in Cultures of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus American Chemical Society National Meeting Salt Lake City UT March 22 2009 Nancy Pineda Dissolving Blood Clots with Snake Venom Extracts Southern California Conference on Undergraduate Research Cal Poly Pomona Pomona CA November 22 2008 Logan Fellhauer and Seth Kutik Potential Treatment of Cardiac Patients Unsing Snake Venom Fibrinolytic Enzymes Southern California Conference on Undergraduate Research Occidental College Los Angeles CA November 18 2006 Santosh Shah Removing Blood Stains from Fabrics using Florida Cottonmouth Snake Venom Extracts Southern California Conference on Undergraduate Research Occidental College Los Angeles CA November 18 2006 Grants Funded to Support this Research Research Corporation Whittier College Faculty Research Grant Students in Professor Devin Iimoto s laboratory are currently working on two major projects the purification and characterization of fibrinolytic enzymes from snake venom that may treat heart attacks and strokes and or remove blood stains from clothes and in collaboration with Professor Ralph Isovitsch testing various stilbenes and other compounds for their potential to prevent cancer Snake venom and fibrinolytic enzymes It is known that many different snake venoms contain enzymes and other proteins that can affect blood clotting by acting as either an anti coagulant prevents blood clotting or as a fibrinolytic agent dissolves blood clots The Florida Cottonmouth Snake Agkistrodon piscivorus conanti is one such snake whose venom contains an enzyme apcfib which is capable of hydrolyzing fibrin the protein which holds the platelets together in the blood clot The enzyme has not been studied much and so Iiomoto s laboratory is interested in isolating and studying this enzyme for its biochemical properties structure and function as well as its potential

  • Ralph Isovitsch | Whittier College
    also contributes to the Liberal Education curriculum by teaching a course on natural disasters and also Freshman Writing Seminar Isovitsch has a research group that usually contains at least three Whittier students Every year since the spring of 2006 the research accomplishments of Dr Isovitsch s students have been presented as posters at national meetings of the American Chemical Society in either the Division of Organic Chemistry or the Division of Inorganic Chemistry Since 2009 the research accomplishments of Dr Isovitsch s students have been featured in eight peer reviewed publications Research is where you apply all of those things that you learn in lecture to the solving of real problems While participating in research gives you a deeper understanding of chemistry it also enhances your patience and perseverance as well as giving you practice in following directions working independently making observations writing and working constructively with others Participation in research takes time and dedication It not only is a great opportunity to learn and grow but also one where you can be observed one on one which can result in a great letter of recommendation Other outcomes from your time doing research can include presentation of research results on posters at national meetings of the American Chemical Society and publication of research papers in peer reviewed journals both of which can make you stand out in a pool of applicants for graduate school or for a job The research that is done by Professor Isovitsch and his students is interdisciplinary It broadly encompasses the fields of organic and inorganic synthesis analytical chemistry as well as physical chemistry Specifically they make new molecules and study their properties toward the goals of applying them to diverse areas such as the catalysis of carbon bond formation and molecular electronics The following narrative describes just a few of the many different research projects that are currently being worked on by Whittier students in Isovitsch s lab Stilbenes Stilbenes are a diverse family of molecules that all have a central carbon carbon double bond with two phenyl rings attached Most stilbenes are to some extent are luminescent This project seeks to add to the understanding of how the placement of substituents affects the luminescence of stilbene derivatives To date this project focused on the two structural isomers of diacetylstilbene shown in the above picture Results from this project have been presented on posters given by Whittier students at national meetings of the American Chemical Society and have been featured in two peer reviewed publications that have appeared in the Journal of Molecular Structure and Helvetica Chimica Acta Future work will involve the synthesis and study of brominated stilbene derivatives The biological and antioxidant properties of the above stilbenes and others have been studied in a collaboration with Professor Erica Fradinger and her students in the Biology department Schiff Bases Synthesis and Coordination Chemistry Schiff bases are an enormous class of versatile molecules that share one common characteristic they all contain a carbon nitrogen double
