Vanderbilt University

Prof. Martin Egli is at Vanderbilt University. He received his diploma in Chemistry from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich) and his PhD in stereochemistry and chemical crystallography from the same institution with Vladimir Prelog and Jack D. Dunitz. After postdoctoral studies with Alexander Rich in the Department of Biology at MIT and a lectureship at ETH, he spent five years as Assistant Professor at Northwestern University before moving to Vanderbilt.
He was a visiting professor in the Departments of Chemistry at Seoul National University (Seoul Korea) and the University of Oxford (Oxford, UK), and currently holds an appointment as WCU Professor in the Department of Biophysics and Chemical Biology at Seoul National University. His research interests include the three-dimensional structures of DNA, RNA, and artificial pairing systems (xeno nucleic acids, XNA), stereoelectronic effects in macromolecules, the specificity and inhibition of serine/threonine kinases, the structure and function of circadian clocks, trans-lesion DNA polymerase-DNA interactions, and the structure and activity of steroidogenic cytochrome P450s. He is an editor of Current Protocols in Nucleic Acid Chemistry, the author and co-author of more than 200 publications, and his research has been continuously supported by the US National Institutes of Health for the past 20 years.
