Marielle has been working hard this semester trying to adhere collagen hydrogels onto gold surfaces. Last week’s attempted experiment left her puzzled as there was no gelation of the collagen solution on the gold plate. This week, Marielle revised the experiment adding a positive control and another method for dropping the collagen solution onto the gold plate. Marielle was pleased to find positive results as the new method allowed for visual confirmation of the gelation of the collagen as seen in the picture. Since Marielle has been working towards this goal all semester, she couldn’t help but feel excited about these results!
