Synthetic Organic Chemistry
Dr. Silberstein graduated from Caltech and earned her doctorate at UCLA. As a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech, she examined the effectiveness and toxicity of polyamides targeting liver cancer in cell culture. She won numerous fellowships during her graduate studies and served as an intern at Genentech in San Francisco. Her research at Westmont focuses her on synthetic chemistry, and she hopes in the future to work on total synthesis, making naturally occurring small molecules.
