Happy to showcase our new paper with the Maimone lab and Novartis on Keap1/Nrf2 activator Bardoxolone as a new E3 ligase recruiter for targeted protein degradation applications now out in Scientific Reports! Congrats to grad student Bingqi Tong and postdoc Mai Luo!!
Congrats to chemical biology student Lydia Boike on her paper published in Cell Chemical Biology on a covalent ligand functionally inhibiting MYC by targeting an intrinsically disordered region!!
Congrats to recent MCB-chemical biology Ph.D. graduate Carl Ward for being co-awarded the Nicholas Cozzarelli Prize!!
The Nicholas Cozzarelli Prize is awarded to MCB PhD graduates for their exceptional graduate dissertation research.
Congrats to chemical biology graduate student Jessica Spradlin for being awarded the NCI F99/K00 Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Transition Award!!
Jessica was previously an NCI F31 predoctoral fellowship recipient. The NCI Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition (F99/K00) Award supports outstanding Ph.D. and other Research Doctoral candidates complete…
