Nobel laureate Aaron Ciechanover, MD, DSc, right, visited the Upstate Medical University campus April 16 and 17 to deliver a public lecture and meet with Upstate faculty, students and community leaders. Dr. Ciechanover shared the 2004 Novel Prize in chemistry with two colleagues for their discovery of ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation that revolutionized today’s approach to treating cancer. The discovery also created new pathways to develop more effective therapies for neurodegenerative disorders and other genetic diseases. Dr. Ciechanover’s visit was hosted by Steven Goodman, PhD, dean of Upstate’s College of Graduate Studies and vice president for research. Above, from left, are David R.
