We are excited to host Dr. Susan Lunte for our first meet-and-greet of the semester, featuring cookies, coffee, and tea! Come join us for an informal discussion with Dr. Lunte, a Distinguished Professor in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Chemistry from the University of Kansas. Dr. Lunte was educated at Kalamazoo College (B.A.) and pursued her Ph.D. at Purdue University under the supervision of Dr. Pete Kissinger. Her research interests include the development of microfluidic-based methodologies for the separation and detection of peptides, amino acids, neurotransmitters and pharmaceuticals in biological fluids. She is a fellow of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) and served as chair of the APQ division. Dr.
Lunte has previously served as president of the Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry and the 2011 Chair of the Analytical Division of the American Chemical Society. In addition to this, she is currently the associate editor for Analytical Methods and on the editorial board of Analytical Chemistry. Dr. Lunte has been the recipient of several awards including a National Science Foundation (NSF) Career Award, the Agnes Fay Morgan Research Award, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy Teacher of the Year Award, the AAPS Research Achievement Award in Analysis and Pharmaceutical Quality (APQ), and most recently the Association of Analytical Chemists (ACA) 2018 ANACHEM Award.
We look forward to hosting Dr. Lunte and hearing about her experience in an academic chemistry career!
