Cynthia P. Palmes-Saloma
Field of award: Biophysics
Year awarded: 2004
Division: Biological Sciences
In recognition of her scientific and technical contributions to the field of biological sciences in the area of biophysics, about it particularly in biological imaging as well as in developmental biology. She combines the tools of molecular biology and optical physics to image the expression domains of various genes both in wild type and mutant whole mount mouse embryos. Her high level of research competence has been evident in her track record in the formulation and implementation of original research projects on neurobiology, mammalian development and genetics and confocal laser scanning microscopy of turbid biological structures in whole mount mouse embryos.
