Martin Jinek

Martin Jinek was born in  Czechoslovakia in 1979. He studied Chemistry and Natural Sciences at Trinity College, University of Cambridge (UK). In 2006, he received his PhD from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg where he conducted his thesis in the lab of Dr. Elena Conti. He then moved to the University of California in Berkeley for postdoctoral research with Prof. Jennifer Doudna. Martin joined the Department of Biochemistry in February 2013 as Assistant Professor on tenure track.

He is interested in the molecular mechanisms that orchestrate cellular regulation through protein-RNA interactions. His studies include biochemical and structural approaches to investigate these processes at the atomic level.

Martin will give the following lecture:

BIO 252: RNA and Proteins: Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression
