Engaging, honest, and affable, these are the traits that I believe a good teacher should have. In my own experience, the instructors who had these characteristics made the material they were covering more appealing, interesting, and ultimately easier to learn. In my courses, I encourage students to think critically when analyzing a problem, not simply memorizing a solution. Chemistry is a central science, incorporating several aspects of other areas of study. Recognizing and understanding, then applying when you have learned to solve a problem is the ultimate goal. Regurgitation is not part of the curriculum. That being said, I have an open door policy with regards to extra help or questions. If my office door is open, come in! Ask away! If it is closed, email me (email@example.com) and we can arrange a meeting.
Research within the Webb group focuses on the occurrence of metals in medicine, as either the therapeutic agent or the target for therapy. Specifically, protein interactions have been observed to be central in either the pathology of several diseases following an interaction with endogenous metal ions, thereby becoming the target for therapy, or in the transportation of metallotherapeutics to their site of action. We are currently investigating several metal-protein interactions, to provide new leads for therapeutic development.
