Oliver Mühlemann is professor of biochemistry at the University of Bern and the director of the NCCR RNA & Disease. After undergrad studies in microbiology at the University of Bern and his diploma on U7 snRNA expression with Daniel Schümperli, he conducted his PhD research on the regulation of alternative splicing at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm and at Uppsala University in the group of Göran Akusjärvi. Following postdoctoral work on the connection between splicing and nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) with Melissa Moore at Brandeis University in Boston, U.S.A., he returned to the University of Bern as a junior group leader in 2000 to continue his research on the mechanism of NMD. He was awarded an ERC starting grant in 2007 and appointed as full professor in 2010. Since 2018, he is also a member of the SNF research council.
