Dr. Stephen Fuchs is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at Tufts University. His research is broadly aimed at understanding how protein structure dictates protein function. In particular, his lab is focused on how post-translational modifications of proteins, such as histones and the repetitive C-terminal domain of RNA polymerase II, regulate chromatin structure and dictate the recruitment of effector proteins. Previously, Dr. Fuchs was a Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA Fellow and Lineberger Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an NIH-Biotechnology Training Program fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Fuchs was recently named a Kavli Frontiers of Science Fellow by National Academy of Sciences and the Kavli Foundation.
