Melman Appointed Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science at Clarkson University

Artem Melman has been appointed associate professor of chemistry and biomolecular science at Clarkson University. He began teaching in January.

Melman received his B.S. and M.S. in radiation chemistry and technology from Mendeleev Chemical Technological Institute in Moscow, was a research student in medicinal chemistry at the All-Union Chemical Pharmaceutical Institute in Moscow, and received his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel.

Melman's main research interests involve medicinal chemistry, bioconjugation methods, macrolide antibiotics and anticancer drugs.

Most recently a research fellow at the National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases of the National Institutes of Health, Melman was previously director of research & development at Salio Nanotechnologies Ltd., a lecturer in the faculty of science at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and a postdoctoral associate at the University of Oxford.

He has co-written more than 30 peer-reviewed articles in journals, including the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, American Journal of Physiology, Organic Letters and the Journal of Organic Chemistry. He has been a reviewer of the Journal of Organic Chemistry, Organic Letters, European Journal of Organic Chemistry, Tetrahedron Letters, Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry Letters and Langmuir. He has also served as a research proposals reviewer for the Israel Science Foundation and the Horowitz Foundation as well as advising M.S. students, a Ph.D. student, and postdoctoral students.

Clarkson University crosses the boundaries of disciplines, nations and cultures in order for discovery, engineering innovation and enterprise to come together. As a result, faculty and graduates grasp the full impact of their calling, direct their research to the world's pressing issues and lead with confidence and distinction. One in seven alumni is already a CEO or other senior executive. Located in Potsdam, N.Y., just outside the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, Clarkson is home to 3,000 students preparing for rewarding careers through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, science, and health sciences, as well as unparalleled outdoor recreation and life experiences beyond the classroom.
