Reed M. Izatt and James J. Christensen Faculty Excellence in Research Lecture to be Sept. 13

Adam T. Woolley, professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Brigham Young University, will deliver the Reed M. Izatt and James J. Christensen Faculty Excellence in Research Lecture at Brigham Young University Tuesday, Sept. 13, in 140 Ezra Taft Benson Building at 4 p.m.

The lecture is titled “Leveraging Molecular Interactions and Self-assembly for Biochemical Analysis and Nanofabrication.”  

In this lecture, Woolley will discuss three current topics of interest: integrated immunoaffinity and solid-phase extraction microfluidic devices for biomarker quantitation, “flow valve” microfluidic systems for simple measurement of sample concentrations, and DNA-templated formation of hybrid organic/inorganic nanostructures.

A graduate of BYU in 1992, Woolley received his doctorate from the University of California, Berkeley in 1997. He was then a Cancer Research Fund Runyon-Winchell Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University from 1998 to 2000.
