Distinguished Professor of Medicinal Chemistry Emeritus, Purdue University
G. Marc Loudon

My current active interests are in teaching, course assessment, and the developing of instructional materials. I am the principal author (with Jim Parise of Notre Dame University) of Organic Chemistry, 6th Edition, published by Roberts and Company, and I am a co-author (also with Jim Parise) of the accompanying Study Guide and Solutions Manual. I have, in collaboration with George Bodner in the Division of Chemical Education, been developing a group-study approach to teaching organic chemistry, which has been implemented in the last 12 years in my organic chemistry course at Purdue (which has 200-240 students). Most recently, I have led an effort to recast the beginning pre-health professions organic chemistry course into a more biologically-focused course as part of the HHMI NEXUS project.
