Petra Fromme Named to Prestigious Faculty Post at Arizona State University

Petra Fromme was appointed the Paul V. Galvin Professor of Science and Engineering at Arizona State University. The endowed chair, the first named professorship at Arizona State, was established in 1959 by Motorola Inc. to honor its founder.

Dr. Fromme joined the ASU department of chemistry and biochemistry in 2002. She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Free University in Berlin, Germany, and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the Technical University of Berlin.

Elizabeth D. Capaldi, provost and executive vice president at Arizona State, said, “Professor Fromme directs an internationally recognized, collaborative research effort and has published high-impact seminal studies at the interface of biochemistry and biophysics. These efforts, like those of Paul Galvin, are not only shaping the way that research can be done, but the opportunities and skills of the next generation of scientific leaders and entrepreneurs.”
