David Boyer, PhD, is a postdoctoral scholar in the laboratory of Dr. David Eisenberg at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he focuses on uncovering the atomic structures of amyloid oligomers thought to be central to the pathology of Alzheimer's disease. He earned his PhD in the Eisenberg Lab, where he learned how to use numerous structural biology techniques, including X-ray crystallography, as well as the cryo-electron microscopy methods micro-electron diffraction, single particle analysis, and helical reconstruction, to uncover the structures of numerous disease-related amyloid fibrils. Dr. Boyer graduated with a bachelor of science degree in biochemistry from the University of Michigan, where he researched biochemical production and enzymology in the labs of Dr. Nina Lin and Dr. Neil Marsh.
