Professor and Head, Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy

Research Interests:

I lead an experienced chemical toxicology research team which is primarily focused on post-menopausal women's health. We currently have two NIH funded projects to examine the carcinogenic effects of estrogens and antiestrogens (R01 CA079870) and investigating natural alternatives to hormone replacement therapy (P50 AT000155). Specifically, we are interested in determining why women who are taking hormone replacement therapy or selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) are at increased risk for developing hormone dependent cancers such as breast or endometrial cancers. We anticipate that by developing a good understanding of the mechanism of how these widely prescribe drugs lead to increased cancer risk, we will be able to design alternatives that maintain the beneficial properties of estrogens/SERMs without generating genotoxic side effects. Our Botanical Dietary Supplements Center is focused on determining whether dietary supplements (red clover, black cohosh, dong quai) with claims of hot flash relief have any efficacy, toxicity, or chemopreventive effects. Our innovative approaches directly address the key issues of mechanisms and prevention of ROS induced estrogen carcinogenesis, which should allow predictions on breast cancer risk assessment. Finally, I am actively engaged in educating the next generation of breast cancer researchers and chemical biologists and have already mentored 20 Ph.D. and 8 masters students and 25 postdoctoral fellows. Therefore, in addition to expertise in chemical toxicology, hormonal carcinogenesis, and chemoprevention, I bring expertise in graduate and post-graduate education to this grant proposal.

Research Interests:

The Burdette lab is interested in biological questions that are important for women’s health. We integrate imaging, drug discovery, and basic biology to try and understand how and where ovarian cancers originate. Our research primarily uses mouse models to understand early events in ovarian cancers. We are also using natural products to uncover new progestins and anti-cancer molecules.

Research Interests:

We are interested in addressing questions related to drug discovery and development from natural sources, in particular from microorganisms. Natural products (or specialized metabolites) play a crucial role in human health. About half of the medicines we use today have their origin in plants, fungi, bacteria and other organisms. Nevertheless, limited access from natural sources coupled with difficulties in altering their chemical structure – which is usually necessary to improve pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties – represent the main challenges of natural product drug discovery and development. Our lab aims to contribute to a) addressing the supply problem and b) generating structural diversity not found in nature but desirable for pharmaceutical applications by using biosynthetic engineering and genomic approaches.

Professor, Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy

Research Interests:

The ITR is pursuing several strategies for discovery of new anti-TB agents. This includes large scale screening of both natural and synthetic compounds for those that demonstrate specificity of activity (i.e. inhibit the TB bacillus but not mammalian cells). Lead compounds are then optimized by semi-synthesis. In addition we are attempting to optimize the anti-TB activity of classes of antibiotics used for other infections but that have not been clinically active in tuberculosis. Activity of all lead compounds are assessed in macrophage and mouse models of TB. Ultimately clinical trials will be conducted with collaborators in TB-endemic regions.

Research Interests:

Employing the tools of mechanistic organic chemistry and the ability to synthesize novel compounds, biomimetics are being developed as probes of biological systems. These mimetics have the capacity to further understanding of biological processes, chemical toxicology and in some cases to provide new drug candidates. This program is revealing new therapeutics for neurological disorders and for cancer.

Research Interests:

I am the Program Manager for the UIC/NIH Center for Botanical Dietary Supplements Research where I organize activities including research and professional development meetings; research data management; public relations and outreach; interface and ensure compliance with policies and procedures of granting organizations, regulatory agencies, external collaborators, and university administration. In addition, I lead the drug-botanical interaction laboratory and am studying drug-botanical interactions specifically focused on Caco-2 permeability assays to predict compound absorption, serum-binding and the induction and inhibition of CYP450 enzymes in human hepatocytes by botanicals. I also participate in the design, coordination, and data analysis of drug-botanical interaction clinical trials.
