Curriculum Vitae

Matt Bochman received his B.S. in Molecular Biology from Juniata College in 2003, where he worked in the lab of Dr. Michael W. Morrow as a Pfizer Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow. Matt received his Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. His thesis work was performed in the lab of Dr. Anthony Schwacha and focused on demonstrating that the Mcm2-7 complex was a uniquely regulated hexameric helicase. As an American Cancer Society postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University from 2009-2013, Matt studied the roles of Pif1 family helicases as they relate to G-quadruplex DNA and has continued this research in the Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry Department at Indiana University since 2013. He studies genome stability when hes not homebrewing, drinking beer with his wife, or trying to raise their two children. He also collaborates with the FLAT12 Bierwerks in Indianapolis to do interesting things with yeast and beer.
