My name is Jesse Murphy and I am from Champlin, Minnesota. From there, I went even further north to the University of Minnesota Duluth for both my undergraduate and Master's degrees. I received a B.S. in biochemistry and molecular biology in 2008 and a M.S. in 2010. My background is in quantifying binding affinities for calcium ion and phospholipid binding proteins.

I joined the Department of Biochemistry’s Ph.D. program in fall 2010 largely because of the people here. While interviewing other programs, I found the facilities and programs at all the schools to be impressive, but it was the people at Purdue that really made up my mind. After rotating in four labs during my first year, I decided to join the Kappock lab. Here, I will be studying the kinetics and mechanisms protein-protein interactions.

Outside of research I am interested in photography and playing guitar.
