Congrats Matthew – M.S. Graduate

Matthew Michel graduated with a Master of Science from the Agricultural and Environmental Chemistry Group. During his time at the Nicklisch Laboratory Matthew worked on the design of database tools analyzing transporter-chemical interactions and method development projects for isolating vacuoles from plant tissue.

In the future Matthew wants to continue to do work with agricultural chemistry, specifically in plant breeding and molecular characterization of crops.

All the best wishes in his future endeavors for M.S. Matthew Michel!

Lily Hinh Presents at the 2022 CBS Dean’s Circle Undergraduate Research Conference

Recent graduate Lily Hinh presented her poster titled Impacts of Transporter-Chemical Interactions and the Importance of a Database at the CBS Dean’s Circle Undergraduate Research Conference. Her poster highlights her work supporting database development and data curation and made the case for cataloguing transporter-chemical interactions in a centralized and all-inclusive database.

Congrats Matthew – Additional Jastro-Shields Funding

Master’s student Matthew Michel was awarded additional Jastro-Shields funding for his research proposal to characterize the vacuolar transport of lignin monomers during cell wall synthesis. Matthew has been growing Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress), Picea abies (Norway spruce), and Medicago sativa (alfalfa) to explore using different plant tissues for transport characterization experiments.
