Stephen M. Fuchs, is the interim Executive Director at the Institute for Protein Innovation (IPI). He has had a more than twenty year career broadly interested in understanding how protein structure dictates function. Much of this work focused specifically on how proteins, including antibodies, recognized post-translational modifications in proteins such as histones. He received his PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and prior to joining IPI, Steve was an Assistant Professor at Tufts University where his research lab focused on novel mechanisms of epigenetic regulation.
