Emily Que, University of Texas-Austin, "" The Que group interests took Emily to the University of California at Berkeley for graduate school where she worked for Prof. Chris Chang. There, Emily developed a series of Gd-based contrast agents for copper sensing applications. For her work in the Chang lab, she was awarded the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry Young Investigator Award in 2010. Emily then moved to Northwestern University, where she joined the labs of Prof. Tom O'Halloran (chemistry) and Prof. Teresa Woodruff (reproductive biology). There, she developed new imaging tools and methods for exploring how the mammalian egg utilizes zinc at the time of fertilization. This collaborative project involved close interactions with chemists, reproductive biologists, electron microscopists, and many scientists at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Lab.
