Dr. Jason Holland earned a B.S. in chemistry from Emporia State University in 1993. Dr. Holland went on to earn a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Texas at Austin in 1998. His graduate research was completed in the laboratory of Professor David Hoffman and focused on using multidimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to determine the three-dimensional structure of ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules. Dr. Holland completed a postdoctoral appointment at the University of Utah where he continued to use NMR to study RNA molecules. In 2000, he joined the chemistry department at the State University of New York-Oswego as an assistant professor. After two years in New York, he accepted an offer to become a faculty member at UCM. His research program investigates the structure and stability of DNA and RNA triple helices.
