The Brenner Lab
Professor Steven Brenner researches computational and experimental genomics (the study of an organism's genome). His research focuses on gene regulation, protein function and structure and personal genomics, among other things. He studies structural genomics, which aims to provide a high-quality model for every protein. In addition, he has worked with a number of collaborators to understand Crohn’s disease and how microbes in the gut can cause the disease.
Brenner recieved his A.B. in Biochemical Sciences from Harvard University in 1992 and Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from the University of Cambridge and MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in 1997. He has been bestowed several awards and accalades including the Overton Prize from the International Society for Computational Biology (2010), Professorship at the Miller Institute for Basic Research in Science (2007), the Young Faculty/Cooperative Extension Specialist Award from the College of Natural Resources at UC Berkeley (2004) and the Searle Scholar (2001).
