Dr. Keir Fogarty, assistant professor of chemistry, specializes in the fields of biotechnology, the chemical mechanisms of disease and novel techniques in modern chemistry. Fogarty’s research background consists of using cutting edge microscope technology to investigate the mechanisms of diseases such as cancer and HIV. Fogarty’s background also reflects the growing trend in interdisciplinary flexibility in modern science. He is comfortable speaking on a wide range of hard science topics (biology, chemistry, and physics), and is skilled at bringing difficult scientific concepts to the level of a general audience.
Expertise: biotechnology, molecular basis of disease, interdisciplinary trend in the sciences
