It’s the beginning of the spring semester and 2019, but it’s important to stay focused on the future. GRAB Lab’s senior members Jake, Marielle, and Emma are all graduating in May leaving behind Alex, Steph, and Kassidy who are all Juniors. GRAB Lab is looking to expand with young talent, preferably sophomore and first year students, to carry on the work left behind. There will be no shortage of work as the focus of research has shifts to include calcium carbonate materials and the mineralization of collagen. As the seniors look to wrap up their projects, the juniors will be fresh into their new projects and keeping summer research in mind. If you are interested in biomineralization or looking to join, feel free to reach out to Dr. Gerdon or any GRAB Lab members with any questions!
