Dr. Gloria Borgstahl is a Professor in the Eppley Institute in Cancer Research and Allied Diseases at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC). She obtained her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 1992 at the University of Iowa. Dr. Borgstahl was a postdoctoral fellow with Dr. Getzoff and Dr. Tainer at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA from 1992-94 and with Dr. Terwilliger at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, NM from 1994-96. In 1996 she joined the Chemistry Department at the University of Toledo as an Assistant Professor. In 2002 she was tenured and joined the Eppley Institute where she established an outstanding X-ray crystallography facility. She is an expert in macromolecular crystallography and knowledgeable in all aspects of protein expression, purification, crystallization, X-ray diffraction, and structure determination.
Mr. Lovelace is a Research Associate, and is the X-ray Crystallography Facility Manager. He is a bioengineer with expertise in computer science and automation, as well as experience in single crystal X-ray diffraction and SAXS. He has received training in maintaining X-ray equipment and in data collection from Rigaku, and performed research at several national synchrotron facilities. He is responsible for training new users, aiding in data collection and processing, keeping the X-ray system, crystallization robots and the lab information systems running smoothly.
