Travis Gallagher studied Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, and then Biochemistry at the University of Texas (Ph.D. 1990). After an NRC postdoctoral fellowship in protein crystallography with Gary Gilliland, he joined NIST's Biotechnology Division, leading to his present position at NIST/IBBR. He is interested in crystal growth, structure determination, and the functional properties of proteins.
