Researcher’s Profile

Wei Gu, PhD

Vice-Chair
Body: 

Dr. Gu is recognized internationally for the pioneering contributions to the regulation of p53-mediated tumor suppressor function. The research of his laboratory has also made significant impacts in establishing two major basic concepts in biochemistry. The first one is that reversal acetylation of non-histone proteins is important for controlling its activities . The second concept is that ubiquitination is reversible and that deubiquitination is a critical step for modulating protein stability .
