We commit to undergraduate research.

“Prior to this summer, I had never done anything like this program. I have really enjoyed my time here, and have met many amazing people in the program and in the lab I worked in.”

Colette Sullivan, a junior chemistry major at the University of South Carolina, Aiken, is conducting research at the UGA College of Engineering this summer as part of our Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) in Nanotechnology and Biomedicine. Supported by the National Science Foundation, the REU program gives students hands-on experience in research.

“My research focus this summer is to characterize the activities of a pharmaceutical polymer through droplet mechanics,” said Colette, who is working in Assistant Professor Eric Freeman’s laboratory. “Simply put, I create droplet bilayers which are akin to electrical circuits, and when I introduce the polymer to the droplet system, I can measure the changes in my 'circuit'. The interface droplet area also represents the biological lipid membrane of living cells. Through this setup, I am able to directly measure changes caused by the polymer in an environment similar to living cells.”

After graduation, Colette plans to pursue an MD and become a medical examiner.
