Gregory Fraley has been a faculty member of biology and neuroscience at Hope College for the last seven years. Originally from Baltimore, Md, USA, he attended the University of Maryland at College Park for both B.S. and M.S. degrees in physiology. Dr. Fraley continued his education at Washington State University, Wash, USA, where he obtained a Ph.D. degree in neuroscience. After postdoctoral training at the Brain Research Institute at UCLA and again at Washington State University, Dr. Fraley became a Senior Fellow at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Dr. Fraley joined the faculty of Hope College in 2004 where he proceeded to earn tenure in only four years. His research involves the study of neuroendocrine and neuropeptide circuitry underlying behavior. Specifically, he is interested in the steroid-neuropeptide effects on parallel brain circuitry involved with the motivational and motor control aspects of feeding and reproduction. Dr. Fraley has active scientific collaborations with colleagues at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine (NY, NY), University Hospital (Salzburg, Austria), and Monash University (Victoria, Australia). While at Hope College, his research has been funded by the NIH, NSF, Campbell Foundation, Great Lakes College Association, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
