ABOUT THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Amy Palmer ’94, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of chemistry and Biochemistry
Dr. Amy E. Palmer is Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Colorado in Boulder and a member of the Colorado Initiative in Molecular Biotechnology. Her primary research interests are to develop fluorescent sensors and probes to track molecules, ions, and chemical reactions in living cells. These sensors allow researchers to track chemical processes in both healthy and diseases cells to study the molecular basis of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and cancer. Dr. Palmer is a native of New Hampshire and received her B.A. cum laude in 1994 from Dartmouth College where she worked with Karen E. Wetterhahn on the toxicity of chromium compounds. She received her Ph.D. in 2001 in Chemistry from Stanford University, working under the direction of Edward I. Solomon. From 2001 – 2005, Dr. Palmer was an NIH postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Nobel Laureate in Chemistry Roger Y. Tsien at the University of California, San Diego.
