Gloria Borgstahl acts as a Professor at the the Eppley Institute for Research in Cancer and Allied Diseases at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, USA. She received her B.S.E. degree in biomedical engineering in 1985 from the University of Iowa, USA. In 1992, she received her Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from the University of Iowa, USA. Her doctoral dissertation was on “High resolution diffraction studies of hemoglobin: ligand-induced tertiary structure movements in ‘locked’ quaternary structures” and her thesis advisor was Dr. Arthur Arnone. She performed postdoctoral research at The Scripps Research Institute with Dr. Elizabeth Getzoff and Dr. John Tainer and solved time-resolved Laue structures of photoactive yellow protein and solved the first structure of human manganese superoxide dismutase. She also did postdoctoral research at the Los Alamos National Laboratory with Dr. Tom Terwilliger. In 1996, she became an Assistant Professorship at the University of Toledo, USA. In 2002, she moved to Omaha NE and joined the Eppley Institute. Borgstahl research interest are varied and include protein structure, time-resolved crystallography, crystallographic methods, structure-based drug design, DNA repair and metabolism, and modulated protein crystals.
