Gregory J. Crowther, PhD

  • Acting Assistant Professor, Allergy and Infectious Diseases
  • University of Washington

Dr. Crowther's current work focuses on target-based drug development with an emphasis on neglected diseases such as malaria. Specific interests include bioinformatic prioritization of possible drug targets and biochemical and biophysical screening assays. Graduate and postdoctoral training concerned regulation of metabolic pathways in methylotrophic bacteria and exercising human muscles. Pedagogical interests include the incorporation of primary literature and educational songs into curricula.
