From front to back, Netz Arroyo, Alex Shaver (holding the cake), Miguel Pellitero and Jonathan Mahlum. Missing in the picture is Vincent Clark, who trades spots with Jonathan in the afternoon to comply with our JHU SOM social density policies. But he got cake too later in the day!
In this study, Alex demonstrates the importance of selecting adequate monolayer chemistries to produce longer-lasting electrochemical biosensors. Specifically, we are working towards improving the operational stability of electrochemical, aptamer-based sensors to enable multiday sensing in vivo. More to come from the group! #NetzLabHopkins https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsami.9b22385
Prof. Soundappan is now an Associate Professor at Navajo Technical University in New Mexico, School of Science. He visited with his student, who is highly motivated to join a graduate program. I look forward to working with them in the near future.
