Title: Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Pharmacology of the Ubiquitin System


Abstract: Our research program aims to provide critical insights onto physiological functions of the ubiquitin system; one of the most complex and enigmatic systems known to date.

As of today we know that approximately 800 enzymes regulate the dynamic ubiquitination of 19,000 protein substrates thus representing a vast and unexplored area of the human druggable genome.

Despite their ubiquity in consumer electronics, rare-earth metals are, as their name suggests, hard to come by. Mining and purifying them is an expensive, labor-intensive and ecologically devastating process. Schelter and his colleagues have devised a new, simple method for separating the two rare-earth metals that are commonly found in things like wind turbine generators and power tool motors, enabling them to be recycled into new products.  

Graduate Student Stephanie Barros Honored

Stephanie Barros  of the Chenoweth Group is one of 10 recipients nationally of the Eli Lilly/WCC Travel Award. This highly-competitive award provides funding for female undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral fellows to travel to a national meeting and present their research. 


Stephanie was able to  travel to the ACS National Meeting in Boston, MA. In addition to her divisional presentation, she presented her work at an awardee poster session and was recognized at the WCC Luncheon.
