Dr. Christopher H. Bohrer received a B.S. in physics and a B.S. in science education at Kent State University. He then left Ohio to obtain a Ph.D. in Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry from Johns Hopkins University. He was mentored by Dr. Jie Xiao and Dr. Elijah Roberts and trained in both theory and experiment. There, he worked on method development for super-resolution microscopy and on understanding the link between DNA organization and transcription regulation. He then joined the group of Dr. Daniel R. Larson in 2021 to investigate the influence of chromatin on transcription regulation --- with a specific focus on enhancer biology. Outside of science, Christopher has two little boys, a wife, and a dog (Galileo) who keep him busy.
