Biography

Jesse received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from the University of Minnesota in 2009. He then worked as a junior scientist in a plant metabolomics lab for a year while applying for graduate school. He began his PhD studies in Chemistry at the University of California, San Diego, and graduated in spring of 2015. In San Diego, he developed new methods to increase the observable proteome. To learn more about the biology of metabolism and aging, he started a postdoctoral position at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in 2015. During this time, Jesse published a number of papers on methods for study of protein acylation. In summer 2018, he left the Buck Institute to do a second postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Here he developed skills in machine learning and built a method for ultrafast proteome analysis. He started as Assistant Professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin in August 2020.

Dr. Meyer teaches in the following graduate-level courses: Techniques in Molecular and Cellular Biology (16242), Biophysical Techniques in Biochemistry (03226/02226).
