Gordon Research Conference – Biomineralization

Posted on Aug 22 by

Dr. Gerdon was fortunate to travel to Girona, Spain to represent the group at the Gordon Research Conference in Biomineralization in August. What a great conference!

It was amazing to learn more about the biology, methodology, ocean chemistry, and organisms involved in biomineralization. The research community was very welcoming and Dr. Gerdon was able to make good connections for the group. Dr. Gerdon presented a poster on: Effects of Rheological Parameters on Mineral Formation in a Microfluidic Device by Aren Gerdon, Aimee Sanford, and Geoff Conklin Here are some shots of Girona and...
