I am happy to report that my research paper on a protein implicated in breast and lung cancer, called BAP1 (BRCA1-associated protein-1), was recently accepted for publication in the journal ‘Cancer Research’.
As you know, my research studies are in the field of cancer biochemistry and for the past few years I have been working on the BAP1 protein-a deubiquitinating enzyme.
The paper is entitled “BAP1 is a tumor suppressor that requires deubiquitinating activity and nuclear localization”. This paper is particularly special to me because it is my first peer-reviewed scientific publication (also, I am the first author). When it becomes available online I will write a blog post on it-it will be my first stab at “blogging on peer-reviewed research”.
