About the Speaker(s)

Lee Kraus
Lee Kraus, PhD Professor and Director, Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences

W. Lee Kraus, Ph.D. is a trained biochemist, molecular biologist, and physiologist who has interests in hormone action, nuclear signaling pathways, chromatin structure, transcription, and the regulation of gene expression in biological systems, including reproduction, inflammation, metabolism, stem cells, and cancer. His laboratory applies a broad array of approaches, from biophysics, biochemistry, and molecular biology, to cell biology, genomics, and mouse genetics, to study the detailed molecular mechanisms that control normal and disease phenotypes.

Dr. Kraus received a B.S. in Physiology from Cornell University in 1989 and completed his graduate research on the regulation of steroid hormone receptor activity in the laboratory of Dr. Benita S. Katzenellenbogen at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, in 1994. He completed his postdoctoral research on the mechanisms of transcriptional regulation with chromatin in the laboratory of Dr. Jim Kadonaga at the University of California, San Diego, in 1999. During his postdoctoral work, Dr. Kraus was supported by fellowships from the National Institutes of Health and the American Cancer Society, California Division.
