I received my Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the UW-Madison with Dick Burgess and a B.S. in Microbiology from the University of Illinois. Since joining GNF in 1999 as one of the founding scientists, I have established research programs in biotherapeutics, protein engineering, protein structure and function, and high-throughput technologies. I am a co-PI for the Joint Center for Structural Genomics, a premier HT-structural biology consortium with over 1400 protein structures solved to date. Prior to 1999, I was a Sr. Research Scientist and Project Manager at Promega Corporation and have had postdoctoral positions at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
