Rachel Green received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Michigan in 1986. Her thesis work was done at Harvard University in the laboratory of Jack Szostak where she was involved in the development of an in vitro selection system for evolving novel functions in the group I intron. Her post-doctoral work was done at the University of California, Santa Cruz in the laboratory of Harry Noller where her interests in the origins of life met with biology. She began as an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1998 and was promoted to full professor in 2007. Her laboratory broadly focuses on the mechanism of translation in bacteria and in eukaryotes, and in its regulation. She has been an investigator at HHMI since 2000.
