Dr Eric Tippmann
Dr. Tippmann attended both Purdue University and Indiana-Purdue University-Fort Wayne as an undergraduate. An organic chemistry course at Purdue shifted his career path from medicine to chemistry. He completed a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Matthew Platz at The Ohio State University in 2003 in the area of Physical Organic Chemistry. Post-doctoral studies in the area of Chemical Biology were then undertaken at The Scripps Research Institute in the laboratory of Prof. Peter Schultz. Dr. Tippmann moved into new laboratories of the Cardiff Physical Organic Chemistry Centre in 2008. His research in the POC Centre is partially funded from ~£6 million in grants from the Wellcome Trust, EPSRC, and BBSRC.
