More than 7,000 miles away from the snowcapped peaks of PyeongChang, scientists from FSU’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry unlocked a novel strategy for synthesizing a highly versatile molecule called olympicene — a compound of carbon and hydrogen atoms named for its familiar shape. “An olympicene is a molecule consisting of five rings that resemble the shape of the famous Olympic rings,” said Cottrell Family Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Igor Alabugin. “This new process for synthesizing these molecules offers a unique tool for the preparation of structurally precise carbon-rich nanostructures.”

Catching up to brain cancer

University of Delaware researchers have produced a new and freely available computer program that predicts cancer cell motion and spread with high accuracy. The system gives researchers a faster way of examining rapidly spreading brain cancer tumors and predicting the likely impact of treatments.

A New Class of Drug to Treat Herpes Simplex Virus Infection

For patients with the herpes simplex-1 virus (HSV-1), there are just a handful of drugs available to treat the painful condition that can affect the eyes, mouth and genitals.If patients develop resistance to these drugs, there are even fewer choices left to treat the infection, which lasts for life.Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have now identified a small drug molecule that can clear the HSV-1 infection in the cells of the cornea — the clear outer layer of the eyeball — and works completely differently than the currently-available drugs, making it a promising potential option for patients who have developed resistance.
