Graduate Research Associate, Brown Laboratory, Macromolecular Sciences

Curtis Allred graduated with a BS in biochemistry from Brigham Young University in Utah, where he grew up. After graduation, he worked as a research assistant in a natural product synthesis laboratory and a biology laboratory, both of which were working on cancer drug development. In the end, biology won him over. He went to UT Southwestern in 2012 to study cancer biology and moved to SRI in 2014 with Kathlynn Brown. His current project involves identifying the receptors for cancer-targeting peptides, as well as assessing the drug delivery capabilities of those peptides.
