Neil Osheroff
Professor
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
USA

 



Neil Osheroff received a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from Hobart College in 1974 followed by a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Northwestern University in 1979. His doctoral dissertation on the mechanism of action of cytochrome c was under the direction of Professor Emanuel Margoliash.

Following his doctoral studies, Dr. Osheroff moved to the Stanford University School of Medicine in 1980, where he was a Helen Hay Whitney Foundation postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Douglas Brutlag in the Department of Biochemistry. In 1983, he moved to the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and he has been on the faculty since that time. Dr. Osheroff currently holds Professorships in the Departments of Biochemistry and Medicine and was endowed with the John G. Coniglio Chair in Biochemistry in 2003. He has spent a combined 27 years on the editorial boards of The Journal of Biological Chemistry and Biochemistry and has authored over 245 publications.

Dr. Osheroff’s research focuses on topoisomerases, enzymes that remove knots and tangles from the genetic material and modulate torsional stress in DNA. In addition to their critical physiological roles, human type I and II topoisomerases are the targets for a number of widely used anticancer drugs. Furthermore, bacterial type II topoisomerases are the targets for quinolones, a drug class that includes some of the most frequently prescribed antibacterials in the world. The Osheroff laboratory has made seminal contributions to our understanding of how topoisomerases function and how anticancer drugs, natural products, and antibacterial agents interact with these enzymes and alter their catalytic functions.

Beyond his research, Dr. Osheroff has a long-standing interest in mentoring and training young scientists and physicians. Twenty-seven Ph.D. students have graduated under his mentorship and he has been a course director in the School of Medicine since 1990.
