Using Peptide-based Novel Biosensors to Detect Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase Activity by Sensitization of Terbium Luminescence
|Parker, Laurie L.|
Dr. Laurie L. Parker is an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota. She was previously an Assistant Professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology and the head of the Parker Lab at Purdue University. She received her B.A. in Chemistry from the University of St. Thomas, Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from the University of Glasgow, and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Chicago. Dr. Parker's research centers on using chemical biology and proteomics to develop biosensors for intracellular phosphorylation signaling. She uses synthetic peptides and protein chemistry to design and synthesize probes for multiplexed analysis of cancer-related signaling proteins.
