Hunter is excited to be able to continue his forensics research as a part of the GRAB Lab team! Here are two solid lipid nanoparticle samples one containing fluorescent pyranine (found in yellow highlighters) and one containing a porphyrin derivative (related to molecules found in hemoglobin) showing different fluorescence. The hope is to use these nanoparticles in a method to label and observe fingerprints. So far research has been a great experience for Hunter with both ups and downs along the way. He has learned a lot from his peers and Dr. Gerdon and hopes to take this knowledge with him when he graduates in May. He will miss the GRAB Lab team but is ready to move on into the real world.
