Author Information

Professor Schowen has closed his research groups, but continues to work in collaborations. Active programs include these projects:
- Studies of the mechanism, involvement of protein dynamics, and antiparasitic drug design for S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolases
- Studies of the stability and degradation kinetics and mechanisms of peptide and protein pharmaceuticals in solution and in solid-phase, polymeric solids
- Design and characterization of green catalysts
