“Large Molecule Chromatography for Small Molecule Analysts”

Dr. Sarah St. John’s formal training is in small molecule drug design and synthetic organic chemistry.  After her graduate work she took a position at the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research and Drug Discovery.  While at Purdue she worked in drug discovery from the drug target side; expressing, purifying, and characterizing viral cysteine proteases as targets for inhibition.  The unifying theme in all of this work was chromatography – from RP-HPLC and flash in the synthesis lab to FPLC in the protein lab.  She started at Phenomenex in May 2016 and has been the Account Manager/Technical Support for the Midwest and Western states since then.
