Professor Frances Separovic on the cover of Australian Journal of Chemistry

School of Chemistry academic Professor Emeritus Frances Separovic is the cover star of the latest volume of the Australian Journal of Chemistry.

The volume is dedicated to Professor Separovic’s career and research, notably how she paved the way for more women in the field of chemistry, academia and industry.

From the foreword of the special issue:

“Frances is credited with developing a technique that utilises NMR spectroscopy to study peptides in aligned lipid bilayers, which has applications in the study of the structure of membrane proteins and their effects on the membrane. Her more recent research is centred on the structure and interactions of amyloid peptides from Alzheimer’s disease, pore-forming toxins, and antibiotic peptides in model biological membranes.

Frances has organised over 45 major national and international conferences and published more than 230 peer-reviewed papers (H index of 54, >9900 citations). Her expertise in NMR spectroscopy has contributed to the success of several major infrastructure grants for the Bio21 NMR Facility at the University of Melbourne, which includes nine spectrometers ranging from 400 to 800 MHz.”
