Project Title

Quantification & Visualization of the Prenylome

Date Awarded



Chemistry and Biochemistry

Project Description

James Wollack, Associate Professor, was awarded $27,185 as a part of a NSF Research Opportunity Award (ROA), which sponsors a scientist from a primarily undergraduate institution collaborating with a currently funded NSF investigator. An ROA is intended to increase the primarily undergraduate institution faculty member's research capability and effectiveness, improve research and teaching at his/her home institution, and enhance the NSF-funded research of a host principal investigator (PI). The Distefano lab at the University of Minnesota is the host collaborator for this award. This proposal looks to target proteins that are elevated in cancer patients, and use synthetic chemistry and biochemical techniques to identify and quantify these proteins in living cells. The ROA provides funding for an undergraduate research assistant and supplies for either a summer or an academic year.
