Anthony (Tony) Mustoe, Ph.D.

I will be starting in late 2019 as an Assistant Professor and CPRIT Scholar at Baylor College of Medicine in the Departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Molecular and Human Genetics, and a core member of the Therapeutic Innovation Center.

From 2014-2019, I was an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow in Kevin Weeks' lab in the Department of Chemistry at UNC Chapel Hill. My postdoctoral research focused on developing hybrid chemical/computational strategies for determining RNA structure and dynamics in living cells, and then applying these strategies to understand the biological function of mRNAs and non-coding RNAs.

I received my Ph.D. in Biophysics in 2014 from the University of Michigan, where I was co-mentored by Charles Brooks III and Hashim Al-Hashimi. My graduate work primarily focused on developing and applying computational biophysical models to understand how RNA secondary structure influences RNA tertiary folding and dynamics.  

I did my undergraduate studies at Washington University in St. Louis, graduating in 2009 with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Mathematics.

I am originally a native of Evanston, IL.
