JOHN COOPER (Undergraduate Student)

I am an undergraduate at Arkansas State University majoring in Biology (Premed).  The project I am focusing on is the synthesis and evaluation of anti-convulsants.  This work is using 5,5-dimethyl-1,3-cyclohexadione as a pharmaceutical base to synthesize enaminones which are currently under investigation for their activity against seizures and PDE4 inhibition.
