Graduate Students

Jennifer McGarry (PhD, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee). With expertise in cloning, expression, purification, biochemical, and biophysical properties of metalloproteins.

Sara Dille (BS, Wheeling Jesuit University; MSES/MPA, Indiana University). Focusing on the synthesis and characterization of asymmetric monooxo molybdenum complexes containing dithiolene ligands.

Breeanna Mintmier (BS, Indiana University of Pennsylvania). Cloning the periplasmic nitrate reductase from Campylobacter jejuni to be heterologously expressed in E. coli. The biochemical and biophysical properties of the periplasmic nitrate reductase will be explored in the near future.

Undergraduate Students

Ian Burke (Biochemistry major). Cloning the Campylobacter jejuni periplasmic nitrate reductase maturation genes for protein expression in E. coli. The roles of maturation proteins NapL and NapD will be explored.

Joseph Cassell (Chemistry major) Focusing on the synthesis and applications of the sensitive metal ion sensor, Leadglow.
