"Gideon Dreyfuss"
Dr. Gideon Dreyfuss is currently the Isaac Norris Professor Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and a principal investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Dr. Dreyfuss's research is concentrated on Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)/neurogeneration, the survival of motor neuron (SMN) complex, RNA-binding protein, Ribonucleoproteins (RNP), and high throughput screening.
He received his Ph.D. in biological chemistry in 1978 from Harvard University. Dr. Dreyfuss is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
