Welcome

Ubiquitin and Ubiquitin-like Proteins

These proteins are intimately involved in cell signaling and are frequently mis-regulated in disease.  We use a modern, multi-disciplinary approach to understand how they participate in key molecular processes and to find new ways to use this information to improve human health.


WHAT WE DO

Identify and test new ways to treat diseases such as cancer
Determine why therapies lose effectiveness over time


WHY WE DO IT

Fresh approaches are needed to improve human health
The best ideas may come from the most unexpected findings
