Steven L. Castle was born in 1971 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. He worked in the laboratory of his grandfather, Prof. Raymond N. Castle of the University of South Florida, during summers in high school. He received his B.S. with Honors in chemistry from Brigham Young University in 1995, where he performed research with Prof. Jerald S. Bradshaw. He earned his Ph.D. in 2000 from The Scripps Research Institute under the direction of Prof. Dale L. Boger. Upon completing a National Institutes of Health postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Prof. Larry E. Overman at the University of California, Irvine, he began his independent career at Brigham Young University in 2002. His research interests encompass the development of new synthetic methods targeting complex bioactive natural products, studies of their modes of action, and peptide science. He is the recipient of a Research Innovation Award from Research Corporation and a Long-Term Invitation Fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.
