After graduating from Duke University with a BA degree in Chemistry, Elizabeth Snow Rowe obtained a PhD from Duke in Biochemistry, studying the thermodynamics of antibody protein folding, and laying the foundation for the further study of the use of antibodies in the treatment of disease. For two decades, she ran a successful research program in Kansas City, in the study of membrane biophysics and the effect of alcohol on membranes.
She then obtained an MBA from the University of Kansas, studied biotechnology company analysis, and played a crucial role as Research Scientist in Verrow Pharmaceuticals, Inc. She is well published in the scientific literature, and is also a sailor, painter, sculptor, pilot, horsewoman, and avid reader.
Sailing Downwind is Elizabeth Snow Rowe’s first book of verse and stories. The poems center on family, and the science and wonder of the world around us. The prose “Adventures” describe the challenges of learning to fly and of hazardous trips in sailboats along the Atlantic coast. There will be much to enjoy in this book. And much to learn from it.
