Jeremy Baskin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and a member of the Weill Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology. A native of Montreal, Canada, Jeremy attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, earning a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, with minors in Biology and Music, in 2004. He carried out his graduate studies in Carolyn Bertozzi’s laboratory in the Department of Chemistry at UC Berkeley, where he harnessed the power of synthetic chemistry to create new tools for imaging the dynamics of biological macromolecules in live cells and organisms. After receiving his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2009, Jeremy moved to the Department of Cell Biology at the Yale School of Medicine, where he was a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Pietro De Camilli and developed a passion for membrane biology and lipid metabolism. Jeremy joined the faculty at Cornell University in August 2015; his research laboratory employs a unique blend of chemical biology and cell biology to answer fundamental questions about lipid signaling.
