Madison Beck, who joined our group last fall as an undergraduate researcher, was awarded a grant from the UA Student Government Association. The funds will support her research on immobilizing cationic polyelectrolytes on plastic surfaces to develop portable and rugged chemosensors for anions. Congratulations Mady!
Xiaoli Liang joined our group as a new graduate student. She will start out on both synthetic and instrumental projects, on the one hand taking over the synthesis of a small dendrimer simulant, and on the other by testing new cationic dyes we received from the Wilson group at the University of Miami. Welcome Xiaoli!
