dylan t. murray, ph.d ( cv )

Dylan earned his Ph.D. in the Molecular Biophysics Graduate Program at Florida State University. He worked under the direction of Dr. Timothy A. Cross at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, developing solid state nuclear magnetic resonance methods to characterize integral membrane protein structures in native-like lipid bilayers. After that, he pursued postdoctoral training with Dr. Robert Tycko in the Lab of Chemical Physics at the National Institutes of Health. While there, he determined a molecular structure for a protein fibril formed by the FUS RNA-binding protein (PDB code 5W3N), also using solid state nuclear magnetic resonance. Additional postdoctoral projects included characterizing a molecular chaperone interacting with a protein fibril and the investigation of a disease mutation that increases pathological aggregation in muscular dystrophy. In July 2018, Dylan joined the Chemistry Department at UC Davis as an Assistant Professor.
