Poncho Meisenheimer is the Director of Promega’s Chemistry Research division. He is responsible for the discovery of new small molecules that enable many of Promega’s luminescent and fluorescent products across segments in drug discovery, cell health, metabolism and biomolecule detection.

Poncho’s research has long centered on the intracellular detection of the interactions between endogenous and exogenous molecules including efficient selective protein labeling, novel pro-luminescent probes for enzyme and biomolecule detection, novel fluorescent tracer and dye development, and novel bioluminescent substrates. Additionally, he leads chemistry research programs in fluorescent nucleotide amidites to enable forensic DNA analysis, polymers to enable capillary electrophoresis, and magnetic microparticles to enable automated genomics.

Poncho received his Ph.D. in Organic Synthesis at University of Colorado–Boulder and served on the faculty at California Polytechnic State University–SLO prior to joining Promega Corporation in 2001. He is an inventor for 29 issued patents and 81 pending applications. He serves on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Usona Institute and for the Chemical Probes Portal.
