Summary Report
1999 Undergraduate and Graduate Research Symposium at ESF

April 14, 1999

Keynote Address

Prof. Koji Nakanishi of Columbia University, one of the foremost natural products chemists in the world and pioneer of spectroscopic methods, delivered the keynote address for the 1999 Symposium: Spotlight on Graduate and Undergraduate Research at ESF. Professor Nakanishi spoke on his recent studies in bioorganic chemistry, including current investigations of the biochemical mechanism of vision and the structural determination of harmful pigments that are formed in the human eye during aging. Dr. Nakanishi autographed a copy of his autobiography "A Wandering Natural Products Chemist", which was donated in commemoration of this event by the Friends of Moon Library. After lecturing on the incredible speed of the photochemical events of vision, Dr. Nakanishi delighted the audience with his demonstration that the hand is quicker than the eye in a show of his nonchemical magic.
