Daniel Herschlag (born October 16, 1958) is an American biochemist and Professor of Biochemistry at the Stanford University School of Medicine. His research uses an interdisciplinary approach to advance our understanding of the fundamental behavior of RNA and proteins. He is well known for his application of rigorous kinetic and mechanistic approaches to RNA and protein systems.
Herschlag received a B.S. in Biochemistry from SUNY-Binghamton in 1982. He began his graduate studies at University of Minnesota then moved on to complete his PhD in Biochemistry at Brandeis University under W.P. Jencks in 1988.
Herschlag was a Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Colorado at Boulder from 1989 to 1992. He conducted post-doctoral research on the mechanism of the newly discovered RNA self-splicing reaction in the lab of Tom Cech.
In 1992, Herschlag joined the faculty of the Biochemistry department in the Stanford University School of Medicine, earning tenure in 1997. He was promoted to full professor in 2002.
