About Ashton E Creasy
I have always had a passion for infectious disease and its impacts on all aspects of human health. After being awarded my B.A. in Biology in 2011 from UNCW, I entered the pharmaceutical industry by means of microbiological quality control laboratories. There, I learned about my indirect role in public health and felt it was my duty to protect the immunocompromised from potential pathogens. Seeking a more direct impact, I left industry to pursue a graduate education at the University of Florida. In the Nelson lab, I am able to not only grow as a scientist, but also apply my investigative and wet lab skills learned in industry to substantial, impactful research. I truly believe our research will positively impact current and future populations and I am excited and motivated to be apart of the process.
