Early life and education

Noller is a native of Oakland, California[1] He earned his BS degree in biochemistry at the University of California, Berkeley and his PhD in chemistry from the University of Oregon[2] He carried out post-doctoral work at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge and the Institute of Molecular Biology at the University of Geneva[1]

Scientific contributions and honors

Noller joined the faculty at University of California, Santa Cruz in 1968[2] In his decades-long study of the molecular translational machinery of the cell, he has made fundamental contributions in understanding the structure and function of the cell's protein-synthesis factory, the ribosome Notable amongst these contributions are having demonstrated that the ribosome is a ribozyme and leading the solution of the first crystal structures at molecular resolution for complete ribosomes[3][4][5]

Noller was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1992[2] He has been recognized with prizes from the Paul Ehrlich Foundation in 2006 and the Gairdner Foundation in 2007, each of which was shared with eventual winners of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2009[1][6] He won a Breakthrough Prize in 2016[7]
