Assistant Professor of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology
The mission of our group is to develop first-in-class inhibitors and prototype drugs for DUBs that can be utilized to pharmacologically validate members of the gene family as new targets for cancer treatment and other diseases.
Professor of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology
Our lab studies eukaryotic gene expression. We are concentrating on three areas: (A) the functions and interactions of the RNA polymerase II (RNApII) basal transcription factors, (B) the communication between chromatin and the transcription machinery, and (C) mRNA processing enzymes and their interactions with RNApII.
