• Research from the Laboratory of Protein Metabolism on the CHIP-UFD-2 ubiquitin ligase interplay and its role in regulating lipid metabolism has been featured on the cover of the August issue of the prestigious EMBO Journal.
    UFD-2, depicted as a jazzman, promotes cooperation between CHIP and ubiquitin-coupling enzymes, doubling the activity of CHIP represented as a double bell saxophone releasing ubiquitin. The graphic pays tribute to the famous Warsaw Jazz Jamboree, a festival adored by the authors. The article can be found at:  https://www.embopress.org/toc/14602075/2022/41/15

About
Institute

In 1995 an international agreement between the Government of the Republic of Poland and UNESCO was signed establishing the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw (IIMCB). The Institute began its independent scientific activity on 1 January 1999.
