      Katja Brueckner received her PhD. in biology and cell signalling from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the University of Heidelberg, Germany. She performed her postdoctoral studies at the EMBL and Harvard Medical School. Katja was a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Associate, long-term post-doctoral fellow of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP), and Special Fellow of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). For her post-doctoral studies, the LLS awarded Katja with the Brian P. ODell Memorial Research Award. Since joining the faculty of UCSF in late 2006, Katja has received a Hellman Family Scholar Award, an American Cancer Society Research Scholar Award, an American Heart Association career development award, and she is funded by research grants from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
