University of Kansas

Susan Lunte is a Ralph N. Adams Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Kansas. Her areas of specialization include: bioanalytical chemistry, liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, electrochemical and laser-induced fluorescence detection, microdialysis sampling, neurochemistry, protein and peptide analysis, microchip analytical systems, mass spectrometry and anticancer drug analysis. The research interests of the Lunte group include microanalytical methods for the investigation of the transport and metabolism of peptides across the blood-brain barrier, separation-based sensors employing on-line microdialysis coupled to microchip electrophoresis, cell-based assays on chips, and microchip-based diagnostics for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. She received her bachelor’s degree from Kalamazoo College and later earned her Ph.D from Purdue University.
