Research Assistant Professor
BIOLOGY & BIOCHEMISTRY

Dr. John W. Craft Jr. is an aerospace engineer from Wichita State University with a Ph.D. in biochemistry and chemical biology from the University of Houston. His interests fuse his Space Shuttle ascent guidance, navigation, and controls experience at NASA with biophysical studies using molecular dynamics simulations and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. He seeks to use the common mathematical foundations of engineering and biophysics to analyze the chemical environments that endow macromolecules their function and then impinge on that function though computational drug design.
