Michael Bustin received his Ph.D. from University at California, Berkeley and did postdoctoral work in the area of protein chemistry, in the laboratory of Drs. S. Moore and W. Stein at the Rockefeller University in New York, and in the area of immunochemistry at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, where he produced antibodies to histones and pioneered their use for studies on chromatin structure and function. His research interests center on the role of chromosomal proteins in chromatin function, gene expression, development and cancer.
