Jonathan Berman graduated with a B.S. in biological sciences from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2009. He graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a Ph.D. in physiology in 2015. His dissertation focused on regulation of the epithelial sodium channel by proteolytic cleavage.
Berman carried out postdoctoral studies at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where he researched renal physiology and the molecular mechanisms underlying hypertension. There he was a trainee on an NIH K12 IRACDA research and teaching training grant. He also taught physiology, biology, and endocrinology at neighboring institutions. He joined New York Institute of Technology in 2019.
In addition to his research and teaching, Berman has been an active science communicator, serving as national co-chair of the March for Science in 2017, host of the unveiling of the world's largest periodic table of the elements, science fair judge, and author of popular science articles.
Berman's research continues to focus on the molecular mechanisms that underlie hypertension and blood pressure regulation at the molecular, organismal, and population levels.
