Principal Investigator, Department of Genome Sciences, University of WashingtonBiography
Dr. Fowler focuses on developing and implementing new technologies to address difficult problems in protein science and genomics. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Genome Sciences and Affiliate Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington in Seattle. His lab works to understand how variation in protein coding regions of the genome relates to disease, as well as to develop new methods for understanding proteins. Dr. Fowler's did his graduate work at The Scripps Research Institute, where he discovered and characterized the first mammalian functional amyloid protein, Pmel17. During his postdoctoral work at the University of Washington, he developed high-throughput methods for analyzing the effect of mutations on protein function.
