Dr. Adam UrbachSan Antonio professor to speak at Schreiner University Crate Lecture

The Schreiner University spring Harry Crate Lecture is scheduled for March 3 at 7 p.m. in the ballroom of the Floyd & Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center on the University campus. Dr. Adam Urbach, assistant professor of chemistry at Trinity University in San Antonio, will speak on “Molecular Recognition of Peptides by Synthetic Receptors.”

He also will talk about pursuing an academic career at university that concentrates on undergraduate education.     

“My research program aims to understand how molecules, such as drugs or hormones, are able to identify a single protein among tens of thousands of possibilities,” Urbach said. “This fidelity is crucial to the function of molecules in living systems. A better understanding of these processes will enable us to design new pharmaceuticals and medical diagnostics.”

The Crate lectures are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Bob Holloway, associate professor of chemistry at Schreiner, (830) 792-7250 or
