Dr. Jeanne HossenloppJeanne Hossenlopp is Marquette University’s vice president for research and innovation. She is a professor of chemistry, served as vice provost for research and dean of the Graduate School from 2010-2015, was interim dean of the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences from 2008-2010, and was chair of the Department of Chemistry from 2004-2008.

A native of Buffalo, NY, Hossenlopp received her B.A. in chemistry from Colgate University in 1981, M.A. in education from Siena Heights College in 1982, and Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Syracuse University in 1987. From 1987-1989 she was a postdoctoral research associate at Columbia University. She joined the faculty at Marquette University in 1989, the same year she received a Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation New Faculty Award, a national award given to 10 new faculty in chemistry, biochemistry, or chemical engineering departments annually.

Hossenlopp has taught physical chemistry courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as general (freshman) chemistry. She was awarded Marquette University's Rev. John P. Raynor, S.J., Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence in 2003. Her research career began by exploring the fundamental details of how energy flows during laser-induced chemical reactions. She later transitioned to studying factors that control structure and reactivity of nanodimensional materials and was involved in collaborative projects focused on developing and characterizing new materials for use in chemical sensors, polymer fire retardants, and water quality remediation applications. Work in her laboratory was funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institute of Standards and Technology and the US Department of Agriculture.

In her current role, Hossenlopp is charged with facilitating growth in campus research and scholarship as well as coordinating many of President Lovell’s new innovation initiatives. She oversees the work of the Offices of Research Compliance and Research and Sponsored Programs. She directs Marquette's participation in the Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeastern Wisconsin, serves on the Academic Advisory Board of The Commons, is a steering committee member for the Institute of Urban Agriculture and Nutrition, and is also on the steering council for Scale Up Milwaukee. Hossenlopp also serves as a co-investigator on a Milwaukee Area Technical College project, funded by National Science Foundation, to increase participation in the biochemical sciences.
