Cell biologist Chris A. Kaiser to lead NIH's National Institute of General Medical Sciences
Date:10/18/2011

in folding and intracellular transport, molecular processes essential to normal cell function. His efforts have led to the identification of numerous genes and related mutations involved in these processes. Kaiser is particularly interested in determining how secreted and other proteins form disulfide bonds, which are important for protein folding and stability. To study these questions, Kaiser uses yeast, a model organism for investigating mammalian genetics.

Kaiser has been an NIGMS grantee since 1992.

An initiative Kaiser said he's particularly eager to join is the institute's effort to build and sustain a strong and diverse scientific workforce, as outlined in the recent NIGMS strategic plan for research training. "Fostering scientific careers and improving workforce diversity are critical to research progress, and NIGMS has really taken a lead in this arena," said Kaiser, who oversaw an effort that increased graduate student diversity within the MIT biology department from 5 to 18 percent over six years.

Kaiser joined the MIT faculty in 1991 and became a full professor in 2002. He has chaired the biology department since 2004. He received an A.B. in biochemistry from Harvard University in 1980 and a Ph.D. in biology from MIT in 1987, then did postdoctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley.

Kaiser is co-author of a widely used textbook, Molecular Cell Biology (5th and 6th Editions). He has also organized Cold Spring Harbor scientific meetings, served on NIH review committees and been associate editor of the journal Molecular Biology of the Cell as well as a member of the editorial board for the journal Traffic.

His honors include a Markey scholarship (1990-1996), a Searle scholarship (1992-1996), the Whitehead Career Development professorship (1994-1997) and election as an American Association for the Advancement of Science fellow (2011). In 1999, he received MIT's highest teaching honor for the in
