The University of Kansas News website has segments describing research efforts by two COBRE participants. Center Member Emily Scott is featured in a video where she discussing her research on a cytochrome P450 enzyme that might help in the fight against lung cancer. She uses advanced research to continue her fight against disease caused by smoking — and her innovative approach has been rewarded with a $303,150 grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Scott’s research is directed at understanding how a particular lung enzyme works — the cytochrome P450 enzyme breaks down nicotine. Read more on the KU News Release.
