Personnel

Collaborators

Dr. Alex Lippert

Alex Lippert, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Chemistry
Southern Methodist University
alippert@smu.edu

Research Interests
The Lippert laboratory designs and synthesizes smart organic molecules that switch their luminescent properties in response to a range of stimuli. The molecules are used to image biological chemistry in living cells using fluorescence microscopy and in living animals using small molecule chemiluminescent imaging. We collaborate under the aegis of an NSF award. See faculty profile
