Lecture: Tapping into Plants’ Natural Chemical Arsenals Without Taxing Nature with Jing-Ke Weng

Small molecules are low molecular-weight organic compounds omnipresent in all living organisms. Humans have a long history of using these compounds from nature to fulfill a wide range of purposes including forming the basis for traditional global medicine. In this lecture, Jing-Ke Weng, a member of Whitehead Institute and an assistant professor of biology at MIT, will discuss how discoveries in natural product chemistry and biochemistry, particularly from plants, have impacted our society in big ways.

This talk is part of Whitehead Institute’s Spring into Science series–evening lectures for the Cambridge community featuring the latest in biomedical research.
