Jerry H. Brown received degrees in chemistry from Brandeis University (B.A., 1983), The Weizmann Institute of Science (M.Sc., 1985), and Harvard University (Ph.D., 1991). As a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard (1991-1993) he helped determine the crystal structure of the Class II histocompatibility antigen with Don C. Wiley, and as a post-doctoral fellow at the Rosenstiel Basic Medical Science Research Center at Brandeis University, he helped determine the crystal structure of bovine fibrinogen with Carolyn Cohen. Dr. Brown has remained at Brandeis, where he is a Senior Research Scientist. His current research interests include structure and function of proteins of the muscle system, in particular tropomyosin and myosin, and deciphering basic designs in protein structures, especially alpha-helical coiled coils.
