Toxicologist for Talk

6 p.m. , Wednesday February 12

Department of Chemistry faculty and students at the University of Central Oklahoma will host Tammy Dugas, Ph.D., at the Feb. 12 meeting of the Oklahoma Section of the American Chemical Society (ACS) for a reception, dinner and presentation. Dugas is an associate professor of chemistry at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport.

A reception for Dugas will be held from 6-6:30 p.m. in the Howell Hall Atrium on Central’s campus followed by dinner in the Heritage Room of the Nigh University Center (NUC). Dinner is $18 for ACS members and guests and $5 for students. Dugas’ presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m., immediately following dinner. An RSVP is required for both dinner and the presentation. 

Dugas’ talk, “Red Wine, Resveratrol and Drug-Eluting Stents,” focuses on polyphenols, groups of chemicals found in red wine, which are known to have vascular-protective effects. The goal of her research is to develop a stent coating that releases these drugs to prevent restenosis, the narrowing of blood vessels, and thrombosis, the formation of blood clots in blood vessels.

Dugas holds a B.S. in biochemistry and a Ph.D. in chemistry from Louisiana State University. Dugas joined the faculty at LSU in 2001 and has pursued diverse research endeavors in the areas of drug metabolism and mechanisms by which toxic chemicals target the cardiovascular system.
