Dr. Susan Gillmor served a faculty member of the chemistry department at George Washington University prior to joining CSR. She won an NSF fellowship pursing her doctoral studies, and after defending her dissertation on DNA microarrays, she joined a start-up company. She returned to academia as a post doc and then established her own lab at George Washington University focusing on cell membranes and lipids. Specifically, her lab investigated antimicrobial peptide lysing of lipid bilayers and nanoparticle biocompatibility for use as ROS therapies in brain disorders, like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
