Portrait of Gregory Bowman

Gregory R. Bowman, Ph.D. is an associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics at Washington University in St. Louis, where his research group develops new ways to interpret genetic variation and combat global health threats by understanding and exploiting protein dynamics using a combination of biophysical experiments, machine learning, physics-based simulations, and the world’s largest distributed computer. Dr. Bowman’s group is particularly interested in developing methods to map out the ensemble of structures a protein adopts, identify allostery and cryptic pockets, and use this information to design new drugs and proteins.

Dr. Bowman’s honors and awards include a Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering, a National Science CAREER Award, a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award at the Scientific Interface (CASI) and a Miller Research Fellowship. He earned his B.S. in computer science from Cornell University and his Ph.D. in biophysics from Stanford University. He was a Miller Research Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.
