Bioengineering Grad Kristine Mayle named C200 Scholar

 
"Kristine Mayle, a Ph.D. student in bioengineering at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, recently was named a Larraine Segil C200 Scholar. The honor, from the Committee of 200 recognizes outstanding women studying in a field of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) with leadership potential, entrepreneurial spirit and a commitment to supporting women.  A member of Professor Daniel T. Kamei’s laboratory, Mayle enrolled at UCLA after graduating from Ohio University with bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering.  She is also a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship. Mayle answered a few questions on her studies and plans here."

Bioengineering faculty's smartphone attachment detects ionic mercury

mercury

A new smartphone attachment from Aydogan Ozcan and his colleagues allows researchers to measure mercury ion concentrations in water samples by snapping a picture.  A water sample is added to a salt solution containing gold nanoparticles and aptamers.  If the water contains mercury, the nanoparticles go from emitting red to blue light, which can be captured by the smartphone.
