 Professor Timothy Macdonald is a former Chair of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Virginia. He has delivered over 100 invited lectures at universities and scientific conferences, has written over 130 publications, and has made contributions to over a dozen patents. The research program on which Professor Macdonald focuses works to elucidate biological mechanisms and to develop approaches for modulating these processes. During the past 10 years, Professor Macdonald's research program has investigated several pathways associated with cellular proliferation, cellular defenses and idiosyncratic drug reactions and has developed a number of agents that target these processes. Awards received by Professor Macdonald: the Alfred P. Sloan Award, the Eli Lilly Young Investigator Award, the Cyanamid Award for Excellence in the Advancement of Chemical Synthesis, and, for the work on AlGlutamine, the Henderson Inventor of the Year Award at the University of Virginia (jointly with Dr. Richard Guerrant). Professor Macdonald received a B. S. degree from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1971, a Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Columbia University in 1975, and undertook postdoctoral studies at Stanford University
