Ryan has been working on attaching our DNA aptamers to the three different gold nanoparticles that we’ve synthesized in the lab (including Rylie’s and Dianna’s syntheses), as well as starting calcium phosphate mineralization experiments using the absorbance plate reader instrument. He’s been working through calculations, solution prep, reactions and plate reader data analysis, and having tons of fun and learning lots along the way!​

His favorite part has been learning how to use all of the different instruments and learning how to interpret the data.​
