Dr. Meier carried out his graduate studies at the UC San Diego, where he performed research studying natural products biochemistry and proteomics under the mentorship of Professor Michael D. Burkart. After receiving his PhD in chemistry in 2009, he moved to the California Institute of Technology. His research as an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Professor Peter B. Dervan focused on the development of high-throughput sequencing methods to analyze small molecule-DNA interactions. In 2013, Dr. Meier joined the NCI, where his research focuses on the development of synthetic probes to investigate metabolic and epigenetic signaling pathways in cancer.
