Bennett Department of Chemistry at West Virginia University

Jonathan Boyd, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the Bennett Department of Chemistry at West Virginia University and the PI for this research. He received his B.S. in biochemistry from the University of Texas at Austin and his Ph.D. in environmental toxicology from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. Boyd’s research utilizes fundamental thermodynamic principles to investigate the response of living systems to changes in their local environment, which simplifies to following the chemical energy within an organism in response to stimulae. Specifically, he is working toward an understanding of how mammalian systems interpret stress, from cellular mechanisms to physiological integration. Boyd has been the recipient of numerous awards for research and innovation, including the Innovation, Design, and Entrepreneurship Fellowship; Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Young Faculty Award; the Global Medical Discovery Key Scientific Article 2014; and the WVU Early Career Innovator of the Year.
