|Professor Regina Murphy received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 1978, then worked for five years as a refinery engineer before returning to MIT for graduate studies. She joined the faculty in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin in 1989. Her primary research interest is in aggregation of a class of proteins known as amyloidogenic proteins. These proteins have been linked to the onset of the pathology associated with Alzheimer's disease, Huntington’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disease. She has written a textbook, Introduction to Chemical Processes: Principles, Analysis, Synthesis, which has been adopted for classroom use in many universities. Her family is all Badger: her husband is also on the faculty and her two sons are UW undergraduates.
