Craig Barton Fryhle is Chair and Professor of Chemistry at Pacific Lutheran University. He earned his B.A. degree from Gettysburg College and Ph.D. from Brown University. His experiences at these institutions shaped his dedication to mentoring undergraduate students in chemistry and the liberal arts, which is a passion that burns strongly for him. His research interests have been in areas relating to the shikimic acid pathway, including molecular modeling and NMR spectrometry of substrates and analogues, as well as structure and reactivity studies of shikimate pathway enzymes using isotopic labeling and mass spectrometry. He has mentored many students in undergraduate research, a number of whom have later earned their Ph.D. degrees and gone on to academic or industrial positions. he has participated in workshops on fostering undergraduate participation in research, and has been an invited participant in efforts by the National Science Foundation to enhance undergraduate research in chemistry. He has received research and instrumentation grants from ten National Science Foundation, the M.J Murdock Charitable Trust, and other private foundations.
His work in chemical education, in addition to textbook co-authorship, involves incorporation of student-let teaching in the classroom and technology-based strategies in organic chemistry.
He has also developed experiments for undergraduate students inorganic laboratory and instrumental analysis courses. He has been a volunteer with the hands-on science program in Seattle public schools, and chair of the Puget Sound Section of the American Chemical Society. He lives in Seattle with his wife and two daughters.
