Mixing Potions

Kristy is taking the collagen mineralization project to the next level by continuing experiments to include gold nanoparticles. She’s finishing up her last year at Emmanuel College and is excited for her future career, but at the moment is focused on classes and research of course! Her first experiments will be with gold nanoparticles, hoping things will go better this time around after the learning curve on how to analyze the nanoparticles with ICP-AES (inductively-coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy). Kristy is also excited about the collagen mineralization manuscript she is preparing with co-authors to be submitted and published. It is so exciting to help bring everything together and seeing the impact of our research!
