About Dr. John Janetzko


"I received my Honors BSc in Chemistry from the University of Toronto in 2011, with a focus on synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry. Following this, I pursued graduate studies in Chemistry at Harvard University. At Harvard, I worked in the labs of Drs. Daniel Kahne and Suzanne Walker studying the structure and function of the essential human enzyme, O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT). My Ph.D. work focused on understanding the mechanism of an enigmatic moonlighting function of OGT that had been described only a year earlier. Over the course of my graduate work, I gained experience with structural mass spectrometry and protein crystallography, which shaped my interest in understanding how protein dynamics are linked to function. To further develop these ideas, I joined the lab of Dr. Brian Kobilka at Stanford University at the end of 2017 for postdoctoral work. There, I’ve been working towards understanding the molecular basis of G protein-coupled receptor desensitization and trafficking. My postdoc work has made use of several techniques including various mass spectrometry approaches, single particle cryo-EM and single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy. In July 2024 I will join the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus, as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics. Besides research, I am passionate about teaching, science communication and making research more inclusive and welcoming. Outside of the lab, I am an avid bike racer, an occasional cycling coach, and I enjoy spending time with my wife, son, and Bernedoodle."
