Congratulations to Graduate Students!

Second year graduate students, George Schaible and Anthony Kohtz (Hatzenpichler Lab) have received a Student Research Grant from the Montana Academy of Sciences to explore new ways to study microbial activity using bioorthogonal chemistry and Raman microscopy. The project's title is "Bioorthogonal Click Chemistry Attachment of Gold Nanoparticles to Active Microorganisms for Cell Sorting Using Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy to Evaluate Multiple Measures of Activity."
