Cenik’s research involves broad analyses of RNA, RNA translation, and protein levels to understand molecular mechanisms governing translation of specific RNAs. Cenik’s work requires cutting-edge genomic and proteomic studies coupled with rigorous bioinformatic analysis. Cenik received his BA in Applied Mathematics from Harvard College, followed by his PhD in Genetics at Harvard Medical School under the tutelage of Dr. Frederick P. Roth. Prior to joining UT Austin, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship under Dr. Michael P. Snyder in genetics at Stanford University, School of Medicine. Cenik has received both an NIH early investigator award and a CPRIT recruitment award
