Dr. David Veesler received his doctoral degree from Aix Marseille University in 2010. From 2011 to 2014, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Scripps Research Institute. Since 2015, he has been working as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Washington. Dr. Veesler’s main research interest is to tackle the structure of macromolecular machines of biological interest to understand the mechanisms underlying their functions. His research team use a multi-disciplinary approach involving cryo-electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography complemented by various biochemical and biophysical techniques to obtain multi-scale data ranging from atom to whole-cell.
