Daniel Southworth, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Neurology
Dan Southworth comes most recently from the University of Michigan’s Department of Biological Chemistry and Life Sciences Institute. Dr. Southworth specializes in using cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM) to study the structure and function of molecular chaperones involved in protein quality control and neurodegenerative disease pathways.
Dr. Southworth received a BS from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and completed his doctoral work at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine under the guidance of Dr. Rachel Green. He completed his postdoctoral work at UCSF in the Agard Lab, where he gained powerful cryo-EM expertise studying the Hsp90 molecular chaperone system.
