It’s Gabby’s first week back in the lab since winter break and she is ready to get back to work on her QCM collagen project! With help, Gabby has finally managed to attach and form a collagen hydrogel on a QCM crystal. It was tricky getting that collagen to form and stick on the crystal, but we found that using a 37 ℃ water bath really helps! Now she is working on mineralizing the collagen with calcium phosphate. The first run of a new experiment always has some unexpected challenges but as you can see Gabby is excited and optimistic about the experiments ahead!
