Steve Reichow, PH.D.
OHSU co-lead investigator for the Pacific Northwest Cryo-EM Center
Associate Professor, Chemical Physiology & Biochemistry and Vollum Institute
Steve Reichow obtained his PhD at the University of Washington, where he used NMR to solve protein structures. He then did postdoctoral Research at UW and HHMI Janelia Farms using cryo-EM to investigate protein structure. He joined the faculty of Portland State University in 2014 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2020 with a joint appointment at OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University). He is relocating to OHSU full-time this fall. His Lab applies biochemical methods, coupled with atomic-level imaging and structure determination (by cryoEM) to understand protein function. It is through this research that he became intimately involved in the Pacific Northwest Cryo-EM Center, called the PNCC, and was recently appointed as the OHSU side co-lead for the PNCC.
