    Department Seminar: Professor Mark Distefano

    Department Seminar

"Protein Lipid-Modification: New Chemistry, New Biology, and New Materials" 

Research in Professor Mark Distefano's group on protein prenylation is focused in two areas: chemical biology and biotechnology applications. In pursuit of those studies, members of the group perform a variety of different types of experiments including chemical synthesis, biochemistry, proteomics and cell culture and animal-based work. The goal of this work is to gain insight into protein prenylation that can be used to advance biology and develop new therapeutic approaches for a broad range of diseases, including cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, and infectious disease.
