Dr. Adam Hoppe is an Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at South Dakota State University and the director of BioSNTR, a state-wide and federally funded initiative aimed at strengthening research in bioscience and biotechnology. Dr. Hoppe is an interdisciplinary scientist with a PhD in Biophysics, and extensive training in cell biology, immunology, optical microscopy and molecular genetics. He leverages his broad training to work collaboratively with other scientists and to catalyze discovery at the cellular/molecular interface. Dr. Hoppe aims to develop new technologies to combat human and animal disease, drive basic discovery in science and train the next generation of informed citizen scientists.
Dr. Hoppe’s research is focused on discovering how immune system cells protect the body against disease. To approach this question, Dr. Hoppe’s lab combines the development of new microscopes with cutting-edge molecular genetic tools to see the biochemistry that underlies immune cell function.
