Gerald R. Crabtree, MD is a HHMI Investigator and Professor of Pathology and Developmental Biology at Stanford University, School of Medicine. He received is MD from Temple University and began his research career at Dartmouth and the NIH. He has been a faculty member at Stanford since 1985 and with HHMI since 1987. Dr. Crabtree was inducted into the National Academy of Science in 1997 and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Dr. Crabtree's laboratory studies the interaction between the signaling pathways and genetic circuits regulating embryonic development. To modulate and explore these circuits, his lab also designs and synthesizes small molecules that rapidly and reversibly activate or inhibit the products of specific genes critical to these circuits, thereby allowing precise temporal analysis of their functions.
