Summer 2016
Peter Foote has been awarded a Katten Muchin Rosenman Travel Scholarship from the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. Congratulations Peter!

The website is up and running! This site is a useful resource for the scientific community offering high quality chemical probes and user guidelines for cell based assays.

We will present our recent results on using the UbFluor probe in HTS and FBDD screens to discover inhibitors of HECT E3 ligases at the 14th Annual Discovery on Target Conference in Boston from September 20-21, 2016. Visit the conference website at
