Jerry Coyne works on diverse areas of evolutionary genetics. The main focus of his laboratory is the original problem raised by Charles Darwin — the origin of species — and on understanding this process through the genetic patterns it produces. He is also interested in speciation, adaptation, population and evolutionary genetics, ecological and quantitative genetics, chromosome evolution and sperm competition. Dr. Coyne received his Ph.D. in biology from Harvard University in 1978. He completed his postdoc in the genetics department of the University of California, Davis. He was a member of the zoology faculty of the University of Maryland, College Park from 1982 to 1986, when he joined The University of Chicago as associate professor, becoming professor in 1991. Dr. Coyne is the recipient of an Award of Excellence and Meritorious Service from the Illinois Public Defender Association and a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, among other honors.
