David Crews David Crews earned his PhD in Psychobiology from the Institute of Animal Behavior (1973; Daniel S. Lehrman, Jay S. Rosenblatt, Colin G. Beer, supevisors). His research has focused on the intersection of ontogeny, causation, ecology and evolution to understand integrative biological traits, in particular principles and constraints imposed by diverse reproductive strategies and how they have led to the evolution of neuroendocrine mechanisms underlying species-typical reproductive behaviors. Other research areas have included the origins of phenotypic and neural plasticity, evolution of hormones and their receptors, signal transduction in temperature-dependent sex determination, endocrine disruption and, most recently, epigenetic influences and the development of behavior. Among many other awards and honors, Crews was selected for the Daniel S. Lehrman Lifetime Achievement Award from Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology and was American Psychological Association Distinguished Scientific Award for an Early Career Contribution to Psychology. He is a member of many scientific honorary scientific societies, including the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, American Psychological Association, American Psychological Society, American Association for the Advancement of Science, Sigma Xi Scientific Research Honorary, and Psi Chi Psychology Honorary. Crews has presented a number of plenary lectures, most notably the Charles H. Sawyer Distinguished Lecture at UCLA, Allen Edwards Lecture at the University of Washington, Bruce Stewart Lecture at American Society of Reproductive Medicine, John Wiley Distinguished Speaker of International Society of Developmental Psychobiology, William's Lecture at the University of Akron, Rushton Lecture at Florida State University, Irving I. Geschwind Memorial Lecturer, and the Walker-Ames Professor at University of Washington.

He was a postdoctoral fellow of PaulLicht at the University of California, Berkeley, Lecturer-Associate Professor at Harvard University (1975-1981). He is currently Ashbel Smith Professor of Zoology and Psychology Section of Integrative Biology at University of Texas at Austin where he has held a position 1982.
