Dr. Crowe-White is a Registered Dietitian and Associate Professor of Human Nutrition. Her research focuses on redox theory and understanding the interplay between bioactive compounds, redox and inflammatory balance, and clinical outcomes related to obesity, cardiometabolic disease, and aging. Outcomes are investigated at the biochemical and genetic level in human and animal models. The Crowe-White Redox Lab has funding from the National Institutes of Health National Cancer Institute and the Office of Dietary Supplements, the American Heart Association, and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics among others. https://kcrowe.people.ua.edu/

Research in the Crowe-White Redox Lab supports the mission of the National Institutes of Health 2020-2030 Strategic Plan for Nutrition Research to investigate epigenetic influences and genetic variants underlying individual responsiveness to nutrition interventions for the purpose of optimizing treatment effectiveness. This extends directly to drug delivery as nutrition is key to the ABCD of clinical pharmacokinetics specifically the bioavailability of drugs and the tissue distribution.
