Jonathan D. Dinman, Ph.D.

Professor

Jonathan Dinman received his A.B. in Philosophy from Oberlin College in 1980, and his Ph.D. in Immunology and Infectious Diseases from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in 1988. He worked as a post-doctoral, and later as a staff fellow under Dr. Reed B. Wickner at the National Institutes of Health from 1989 - 1995. During this time, Dr. Dinman developed a yeast-based system for the study of programmed ribosomal frameshifting. In 1995, he began his career as an independent investigator, taking an Assistant Professor position in the Department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Dinman was promoted to Associate Professor in 2001. In January 2002 he moved to the Department of Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics at the University of Maryland, College Park MD. He is also a member of the Virology Training Program at the University of Maryland.

Dr. Dinman's research program has been built around programmed ribosomal frameshifting. This has led him into investigations of translational fidelity, ribosome structure/function, and control of gene regulation. He currently oversees one Research Associate Professor, three Post-doctoral fellow, six doctoral candidates, and one Honors program undergraduate student. Dr. Dinman has 2000 sq. ft. of laboratory space located in the Microbiology building, rooms 2135 and 2136. His office is adjacent to the lab, and students and post-docs have office space down the hall.
