Dr. Geraldine Seydoux is among the early scientists describing a role for intrinsically disordered proteins in the assembly of biomolecular condensates. She is the Huntington Sheldon Professor in Medical Discovery and the vice dean for Basic Research at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute*.

Dr. Seydoux studies the assembly and function of condensates using genetic and biochemical approaches. Her lab has developed a reconstituted model for the assembly of multiphase condensates with RNA. Her work has garnered several honors, including a Presidential Early Career Award, a MacArthur Fellowship, and membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Seydoux started her career in postdoctoral research with Andy Fire at the Carnegie Institute of Washington before joining the faculty of Johns Hopkins in 1995. She received her Ph.D. in molecular biology from Princeton University in 1991.
