Read Dr. Gregurick’s full bio
Dr. Gregurick was previously the Division Director for Biophysics, Biomedical Technology, and Computational Biosciences at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). Her mission in this role was to advance research in computational biology, biophysics and data sciences, mathematical and biostatistical methods, and biomedical technologies in support of the NIGMS mission to increase our understanding of life processes. In this role Dr. Gregurick led the institutes effort to reimagine the NIGMS technology programs including early stage, concept development, focused technology programs, development and dissemination centers, through National and Regional Resources to support state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, technologies, research tools, software, and service.
Prior to joining the NIH in 2013, Dr. Gregurick was a program director in the Office of Biological and Environmental Research at the Department of Energy (DOE). In this role, she developed the information and data sharing policy for the agency’s Genomics Science Program and oversaw the development and implementation of the DOE Systems Biology Knowledgebase, a framework to integrate data, models, and simulations together for a better understanding of energy and environmental processes.
Before beginning a career of government service, Dr. Gregurick was a professor of computational chemistry at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Her research interests included dynamics of large biological macromolecules, and her areas of expertise are computational biology, high performance computing, neutron scattering and bioinformatics.
Dr. Gregurick received the 2020 Leadership in Biological Sciences Award from the Washington Academy of Sciences.
Dr. Gregurick received her undergraduate degree in chemistry and mathematics from the University of Michigan and her Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Maryland. She completed a Lady Davis postdoctoral fellowship at Hebrew University in Israel and a Sloan postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Maryland’s Center for Advanced Research in Biotechnology, now the Institute for Bioscience & Biotechnology Research, in Shady Grove, Md.
