Meet the FAS Faculty: Jason Crawford

February 28, 2022

There’s a hidden universe of small molecules — and by mapping that universe, chemical biologist Jason Crawford reveals how molecules and microbes might hold the keys to protecting human health.

Crawford and his lab have advanced our understanding of how microbes alter human physiology, leading to innovative new treatments for disease.

Crawford is a member of Yale’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), home to more than 1,200 faculty members and 50 departments and programs that provide the instruction to the students of Yale College and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. He is also an associate professor of microbial pathogenesis at Yale School of Medicine.
