Professor Art Palmer III
Arthur G. Palmer, III received the Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1989, under the direction of Dr. Nancy L. Thompson, and was a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow with Dr. Peter E. Wright at the Scripps Research Institute from 1989-1992. Palmer moved to Columbia University in 1992 and currently is the Robert Wood Johnson Jr. Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics. Palmer also is the Director of NMR Spectroscopy at the New York Structural Biology Center. His research interests include development of methods in NMR spectroscopy, nuclear spin relaxation in biological macromolecules, computational and theoretical analyses of protein dynamics, and applications to protein folding, molecular recognition, and catalysis. Palmer’s work has been recognized by the 2013 Nakanishi Prize of the American Chemical Society and the 2015 Gunther Laukien Prize of the Experimental NMR Conference (ENC).
