Eva Nogales carried out her bachelor studies in Physics at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. During her graduate work at the Synchrotron Radiation source in the UK, she used SAXS and cryo-EM to investigate the assembly of tubulin polymers. Her postdoctoral work in the lab of Ken Downing at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab produced the first atomic structure of tubulin using electron crystallography. Since 2000 she is an HHMI Investigator. Presently she is Professor and Head in the Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology Division of the MCB department at UC Berkeley, where she studies cytoskeletal proteins and gene regulatory complexes using cryo-EM.
