Sanford Leuba, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Department of Cell Biology & Physiology


Dr. Leuba received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Biophysics at Oregon State University where he studied chromatin fiber structure with Dr. Ken van Holde. He received a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Fellowship to study chromatin fiber structure by Atomic Force Microscopy in the laboratory of Dr. Carlos Bustamante in the Institute of Molecular Biology at the University of Oregon. This training was followed by a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Stuart M. Lindsay at Arizona State University to study chromatin using Dynamic Force Microscopy. A four-year National Cancer Institute Scholar award brought Dr. Leuba to the NIH where he applied single-molecule approaches to the structure and dynamics of single chromatin fibers. Here in Pittsburgh, Dr. Leuba has continued these single-molecule approaches to chromatin.
