Chan Beals

Chan worked with Neil Clipstone to define the mechanism of nuclear export of the NF-ATc1 protein by first defining mutations that prevented nuclear export and then purifying the kinases that specifically phosphorylate these sites. He found that GSK3 phosphorylates the specific sites after a still unidentified kinase primed the protein for later phosphorylation by GSK3. Chan returned to his home state of Washington where he now works for ICOS and can be reached at
