Katharina Schlacher obtained her B.S. in microbiology at the Karl-Franzens University in Graz, Austria. For graduate studies, in 2003 she joined the lab of Myron Goodman at the University of Southern California, where she earned her Ph.D. While there, she discovered an unprecedented transactivation mechanism for mutagenic E. coli DNA polymerase V by proteobacter recombinase RecA, recognized by the USC College Doctoral Research Prize. In 2007, as a Damon Runyon Postdoctoral Fellow, Schlacher joined Maria Jasin at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and Hong Wu at the University of California, Los Angeles, to focus on her passion for mechanisms at the replication fork.
