About the Speaker
Todd Lowary received his B.A. in chemistry from the University of Montana and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Alberta. His postdoctoral appointments were at the University of Alberta and the Carlsberg Laboratory. 
 
In 1996, he started a position in the Department of Chemistry at The Ohio State University as an Assistant Professor and in 2002 was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. He returned to the University of Alberta in 2003, retiring in 2021 as the R. U. Lemieux Professor of Carbohydrate Chemistry. 
 
In 2019 he became a Distinguished Research Fellow at the Institute of Biological Chemistry at Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan, a position he continues to hold. His research interests are in carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry, in particular as these fields relate to bacterial glycans. His areas of particular focus are glycans from mycobacteria, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the pathogen that causes tuberculosis, Campylobacter jejuni, a gut pathogen that causes enteritis, and chlorella viruses. 
 
He is a Fellow of the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Royal Society of Canada.
