Members of the research team have, sadly, not been in the lab this summer, but we have continued to meet and work on literature over the summer via Zoom. These meetings have gotten a little more exciting due to visits from two distinguished alumni. In June, Aimee Sanford ’16, graduate student in chemistry at Emory University, joined our meeting to talk about her path from Emmanuel through the CDC and into graduate school. Her work on DNA aptamers was great to hear about in comparison to our own work. In July, Krista Meserve ’18, graduate student in chemistry at University of Michigan, joined to talk about her path from Emmanuel through industry and into graduate school. Krista’s new projects in bioanalytical sensor development sound amazing! We really appreciate the time that Aimee and Krista put into preparing their presentations and sharing with us. You’re both awesome chemists and amazing Emmanuel alumni!
Here are some throwback pictures from old blog posts – thanks Aimee and Krista!
