Crow in 2002, was promoted to Associate Vice-President for Research. In these leadership roles he was responsible for co-designing and managing a diverse portfolio of unique interdisciplinary research initiatives, including ASU’s Biodesign Institute; the Arts, Media and Engineering Program; and the Center for Conflict and Religion. He became the Founding Director of the Flexible Display Center at Arizona State in 2004 through a $94M, 10-year Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. Under his leadership, a world-class industry-government-university partnership was created that enabled organizations with dramatically different missions and scales to collectively advance flexible electronics science and technology on a broad front, with more than 56 patents granted and with a significant portfolio of enabling manufacturing technologies commercialized. His current focus is on flexible and conformable flexible electronics fabrication and seamless integration in novel medical/wellness/human performance products and in smart spaces, and on catalyzing and fostering associated start-up companies.
