Joyce Wins PEAK Experiences Ascent Award!

Joyce Shen, a third-year Biochemistry student, has recently received a PEAK Experiences Ascent Award for her project “Engineering Polyester-Coated Microparticles for Extended Oxygen Release” for Spring 2022. This award is granted by the Office of Undergraduate Research and Fellowships to students with basic conceptual and practical skills who seek to broaden and deepen their competencies in research and creative endeavor.

With her project, Joyce will coat calcium peroxide particles with polyester and incorporate them into cryogels in order to potentially extend oxygen release and address hypoxia.

Congrats Joyce! More information can be found here.
