Time Event Title
10:00 am-Apr 21st 5:00 pmExhibition: "Modern Madness: The Armory Show Revisited" SHELDON MUSEUM of ART
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the International Exhibition of Modern Art at Manhattan’s Sixty-Ninth Regiment Armory in February 1913, Sheldon Museum of Art presents "Modern Madness: The Armory Show Revisited," an exhibition of the art that introduced Americans to European modernism. The 1913 exhibition instantly produced controversy: students publicly burned copies of the artwork on display and politicians inveighed against the artists’ morality, all the while salacious newspaper stories supplied months of coverage.

4:00 pm-5:00 pmBiochemistry / Redox Biology Center Seminar -- Kenneth Tew BEADLE CENTER
Kennth Tew, Chairman, Department of Pharmacology, John C. West Chair in Cancer Research, Medical University of South Carolina, will present the seminar "Drug Biomarker Development on a Redox Platform" on Tues. January 22, 2013 at 4:00 PM in N172 Beadle Center.

Dr.Tew’s research employs an essential platform that interrogates redox pathways (with special emphasis on glutathione homeostasis) in drug discovery/development, drug resistance and biomarker identification in cancer. In oncology, there is a critical need to identify new drugs with clinical utility and biomarkers that correlate with drug responses. Recently, research has focused upon specific post-translationally modified, S-glutathionylated proteins that influence cell-signaling pathways and may serve as surrogate plasma biomarkers for oxidative and nitrosative stress. Translational research efforts have resulted in one glutathione S-transferase activated prodrug and two small molecule drugs that are under clinical development.
