Genetic code expansion has tremendous potential to revolutionize peptide, protein, and protein-like therapeutics through the strategic substitution of non-canonical amino acids – or even more exotic monomers – to improve functional diversity, pharmacodynamics, produce antibody-drug conjugates, or even generate novel macrocycles. In all of these… Read More »New paper: genetic code expansion with high yield and exceptional fidelity
Congratulations to C-GEM’s first-ever cohort of summer research students! These eight women spent their summer working with graduate students and postdocs on virtual research projects, which you can read more about here: The Future of the Ribosome and its Role in the Future of the… Read More »C-GEM’s inaugural Summer Research Program wraps!
A big congratulations to Schepartz lab graduate student Cameron Swenson and Cate lab rotation student Kristina Boyko on their honorable mentions in this year’s NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program!
