Katarina, Alex, Sam, Emma, and Jake have been hard at work in the research lab all summer and now finally get a short break before the new semester starts in September. To conclude their hard work, each student presented their “State of the Project” report in order to put their project into perspective of previous work, to report on exciting new results from the summer, and to plan for work to come in the fall. Congrats to each on excellent work and excellent presentations! Presentation titles are given below and recaps of each project will be presented at Emmanuel College this fall semester at the summer research poster session.
Katarina: “Using Stripping Voltammetry for Rapid Diagnostics Tests for Malaria”
Alex: “Effects of Selected DNA Aptamers on the Morphology and Crystallinity of Hydroxyapatite”
Sam: “Developing a mechanism for calcium carbonate mineralization in coral polyps using microfluidics”
Emma: “DNA Aptamers that Selectively Bind to Hydroxyapatite”
Jake: “Calcium phosphate supersaturation ratios alter DNA-templated mineralization in solution”
