Distinguished Scientist Lecture with Ning Zheng, Ph.D.
May 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
“Targeted Protein Degradation in Biology and Drug Discovery”
Research in the Zheng lab seeks to understand the intricate interactions and coordinated functions of proteins and signaling molecules found in eukaryotes ranging from fungi, plants to humans. Using a structural biology approach, Zheng and his team conduct studies that span several interwoven research areas, including protein ubiquitination, cell signaling, epigenetic regulation, plant hormones, ion channels, and circadian clocks. Their overarching goal is to apply the underlying biological principles they learn to the development of novel therapeutics as well as to the planet’s ecological balance. This lecture will focus on the latest advances in our understanding of targeted protein degradation and its promising potential for drug discovery.
