Biography

David Lowry is a Senior Research Specialist and manages the Life Science Electron Microscopy Lab. He has worked in a research capacity at ASU for over 20 years and since 2005 has managed the LSEML core, which is a subunit of the Eyring Materials Center in OKED Core Facilities. His primary duties are to provide research services, equipment training, and technical advice to users of the LSEML. In addition to his research-oriented activities, he has taught for-credit laboratory courses in the School of Life Sciences, providing hands-on instruction in EM techniques and instrument use to approximately 50 graduate students. During his research tenure he has been an author on 15 peer-reviewed publications and has contributed EM-based data to numerous others.
