Personal profile

Personal profile

After completion of his fellowship in the Metabolic Research Unit at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) in 1994, Dr. Webb joined the permanent research staff there in the laboratory of Dr. John Baxter. He rose through the ranks and, in 1999, became an Assistant Research Biochemist Level IV. In 2001, Dr. Webb joined the Diabetes Center at UCSF where he was quickly promoted to an Associate Researcher Level IV. He spent a year as a visiting professor in Biochemistry at the University of San Francisco in 2005 where he taught several courses in biochemistry. He has co-written over 130 manuscripts that have been published in peer-reviewed publications.

Research interests

Dr. Webb's main research interests are investigations into the principles of nuclear hormone receptor structure and function, as well as studies of the actions of pharmaceutical agents to selectively modulate actions of these proteins. Research approaches include X-ray structural analysis, targeted mutagenesis to understand receptor structure, detailed analysis of gene expression and genome wide sequence interactions and collaborative studies to determine the metabolic effects of drugs in preclinical models.
