About Dr. Daniel Wacker

I obtained my B.Sc. degree from the University of Munich performing work in the lab of Dr. Roland Beckmann with a brief stay at Cambridge University, UK, working in the lab of the late Dr. Kiyoshi Nagai. I then obtained an M.Sc. at the University in Munich working e.g. in the lab of Patrick Cramer. I next moved to Rockefeller University in NYC to work in the lab of the late Dr. Guenter Blobel, before starting my Ph.D. in 2009 at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla. There I obtained my Ph.D. in the lab of Dr. Ray Stevens in 2013 solving several GPCR crystal structures, including that of the first serotonin receptor. I then moved to UNC at Chapel Hill to do postdoctoral work in the lab of Dr. Bryan Roth where I established GPCR structural biology and learned the ins and outs of molecular pharmacology and in vitro drug discovery. In 2018 I started my own lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in NYC, where I have been working on structure-function and drug discovery of GPCRs and transporters.
