Emanuel Strehler is a Professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn, USA. His principal research interests concern the molecular mechanisms of calcium regulation and calcium signaling, including calcium transport systems of the membrane and calcium sensor proteins. Dr. Strehler received his M.S. degree in 1977 and his Ph.D. degree in biochemistry and cell biology in 1981 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland. After postdoctoral training at Umea University in Sweden (1981, electron microscopy) and at Harvard Medical School (1982–1986, molecular biology), he was an Assistant Professor in the Laboratory of Biochemistry at the ETH Zurich (1986–1992) before joining the faculty of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn, USA. Since 2006, he also serves as Adjunct Professor at the Department of Pharmacology of the University of Saskatchewan, SK, Canada. From 2000 to 2007, he was a Graduate Program Director for the Molecular Neuroscience Track of the Mayo Graduate School. Dr. Strehler currently serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Biological Chemistry (2006–2011 and 2013–2018). Dr. Strehler’s honors include the prize and silver medal for his M.S. degree (1977) and his Ph.D. degree thesis (1981), an EMBO short-term fellowship (1981), a fellowship for Young Advanced Researchers from the Swiss National Science Foundation (1982–1984), the ETH-Latsis Prize from the International Latsis Foundation for his work on the molecular biology of calcium pumps (1990), and a START career development award from the Swiss NSF (1990–1993). Dr. Strehler is a Member of numerous professional societies, including the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), the European Calcium Society (ECS), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
