Paul R. Chipman
Paul Chipman received his B. Sc. in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the University of Guelph. As an undergraduate, his thesis project involved the processing of electron micrographs of IgG subclasses for structural analysis in the lab of Dr. George Harauz. In 1994 he completed a certification in Electron Microscopy Technology at Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology. He's been involved in research and facility management, involving cryo-electron microscopy, for the last 20 years, including stops in Seattle, Winnipeg and West Lafayette, Indiana where he spent nearly 14 years working at Purdue University. As Director of Purdue's Biological Electron Microscopy Facility, Paul spent several years overseeing the design and construction of a new, state-of-the-art EM facility, completed in 2009. With Purdue's lab operational, he accepted a new challenge, to start a cryo-electron program for the University of Florida's Macromolecular Structure Group. He and his family arrived in Gainesville during the summer of 2011 just prior to the delivery of UF's two new cryo-transmission electron microscopes.
