Rylie is very excited to start working in the lab this semester! In the fall, Rylie joined Dr. Gerdon’s research group after reading several literature papers and coming to group meetings. Now, she is working on gold nanoparticle synthesis using a new molecule, 3-mercaptobenzoic acid, as the organic group. Using the Azubel method, she hopes to be able to select for uniform nanoparticles of different sizes and eventually helping to build a library of nanoparticles. Rylie is looking forward to starting the research process and learning more about nanoparticle synthesis this semester!
