David P. Giedroc

David Giedroc earned a B.S. in Biochemistry from the Pennsylvania State University and Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in 1984.  Following a postdoctoral stint as an NIH postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of the late Joseph Coleman at Yale University, he joined the faculty in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Texas A&M University in 1988.  He joined the Department of Chemistry at Indiana University in 2007, served as Chair of Department from 2010-1015 and is Lilly Chemistry Alumni Professor.  Prof. Giedroc’s research interests fall under a common umbrella coined the biophysical chemistry of infectious disease.  He has long-standing interests in transition metal homeostasis (metallostasis) and more recent interests in hydrogen sulfide (H2S) sensing and reactive sulfur species (RSS) in major nosocomial bacterial pathogens.  Prof. Giedroc seeks a molecular-level understanding of macromolecular structure, dynamics and regulation, and uses the tools of biophysical chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, proteomic profiling and NMR structure determination.
