Todd L. Lowary received his B.A. in Chemistry from the University of Montana in 1988 and his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry under the supervision of Professor Ole Hindsgaul at the University of Alberta in 1993. Subsequent postdoctoral research appointments were with Professor David R. Bundle at the University of Alberta (1993–1995), and Dr. Morten Meldal at the Carlsberg Laboratory in Copenhagen, Denmark (1995–1996). In 1996, he took a position in the Department of Chemistry at The Ohio State University as an Assistant Professor and in 2002 was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. He returned to the University of Alberta in 2003, where he currently is the R. U. Lemieux Professor in the Department of Chemistry and a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair. Group research interests are focused in the areas of carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry, in particular as these fields relate to bacterial glycans.
