Students, Faculty Complete Summer Research at University of Rochester
Fisher Biology students had an opportunity to work in a nanotechnology laboratory at the University of Rochester for 10 weeks this summer thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation. Dr. Fernando Ontiveros, Assistant Professor of Biology, and Dr. James McGrath, Director of the Graduate Program of Biomedical Engineering, applied for and received the $25,000 grant.
Ontiveros’ goal was to expose students to state-of-the-art research and technology in an effort to help inform their future career decisions. The team had access to microfabrication and metrology tools of the URNano laboratory.
Ontiveros said that because of the funding and expertise gained during the summer, Fisher's Nanobiology laboratory can now offer faculty and students the ability to produce and test their own microfluidic devices.
Students Niecy Cameron, John Crean and James Ryan McDowell.
