Since Amanda has returned to the lab a few weeks ago, she has been working on mineralizing collagen hydrogels. These are the first hydrogels she has made since last spring! She made four hydrogels and mineralized them in different solutions using poly-aspartic acid and DNA aptamers. Once she finishes her experiment, she will take IR of the hydrogels and will analyze the data. She’s excited to see her results, and she is so grateful to have the opportunity to be doing research in person!
