Research at Rochester: Jia divides and conquers tissue development
A scientist and a student, senior Anna Jia studies how tissues develop, in which how cell division drives the development of an epithelium. Her project was to determine the relationship between cell division and the cell cycle, as well as to assess any effect on when and how this process occurs.
Research at Rochester: Irving upgrades voltage and current measurement instrument technology
Recently publishing a paper with Dr. Yates on an upgraded potentiostat, Senior Paul Irving tests the limits of modern engineering and chemical capability. Last summer, Irving interned for Mosaic Microsystems, and from this experience, Irving wanted to design a low cost, open-source potentiostat instrument that takes accurate measurements over a specified electrical current voltage range.
Research at Rochester: Jerotich explores how heat works at the nanoscale
Jerotich currently works in the Pickel Lab, where she collaborates with other undergraduates and graduate students to address fundamental problems in heat transfer at the nanoscale using numerical and experimental methods. Heat transfer is the study of how thermal energy moves through systems.
