Introducing! Amber Charlebois
Dr. Amber Flynn Charlebois is an Assistant Professor and the Pre-health Advisor at Nazareth College. She received her B.S. Degree from Syracuse University, her PhD from the University of Buffalo, and continued as a postdoctoral associate at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She has been teaching general, organic and biochemistry at the undergraduate level for 20 years where she has developed her research program to investigate the interaction of the small dye molecule, cresyl violet, with nucleic acids and the synthesis of stercobilin, a potential biomarker for childhood autism. During this time Dr. Charlebois has mentored more than 70 students in research projects, which has led to numerous student presentations at local, regional and national chemistry meetings. She is married to fellow chemist, Jay, and has four children: three of her own, Steven, Matthew and Victoria, and her niece, Kyra. She is very active in the American Chemical Society at both the local, regional and national levels. She is currently chair of both NERM 2020 (Rochester, NY) and the National Communications and Public Relations Committee. She is most excited to host NERM 2020 in Rochester to show off all the wonderful things this city has to offer. It is rich in chemistry, culture and creativity. She is looking forward to sharing this great little area of the country with her ACS colleagues.
