Dr. Murray Junop is an Associate Professor and the Associate Undergraduate Chair in the Biochemistry Department at Western University. His primary research focuses on using x-ray crystallography to determine macromolecular structures crucial for the repair of various types of DNA damage. Ultimately, understanding the structures of these DNA repair proteins not only sheds insight into their function and molecular mechanism, but also provides necessary information for developing new anticancer therapies. Dr. Junop teaches undergraduate and graduate level courses offered in the department of Biochemistry. Violet Liu, a Reviewer on the Editorial Review Board at WURJ-HNS, had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Junop to learn more about his career in research and his advice to students.
