Bagaman, Farrah

Farrah worked on the group’s silicon surface science projects.

Phillips, Andrew

Andrew Phillips was a chemistry major at the University of Michigan who  worked with Casey Dougherty on the synthesis of dyes and the methods of ligand-dendrimer conjugations. Outside of the lab, Andrew was involved in the Science Learning Center’s Study Group Program, where he lead biology and physics study groups. He also enjoys cooking and playing tennis, Michigan weather permitting. Andrew plans to pursue a career in research.

Andrew is is currently a PhD student in chemical biology at the University of Chicago.

Richardson, Rachelle

Rachelle Richardson is fourth year undergraduate at Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans, where she currently works in the research lab of Dr. Stassi DiMaggio synthesizing and purifying dendrimer conjugates. She presently is majoring in chemistry and minoring in Spanish and hopes that somehow in her career she can use her knowledge of the Spanish language. When not at school or in the lab she thoroughly enjoys traveling, doing Sudoku puzzles, and listening to good music. After graduation, she plans to attend graduate school to obtain a doctorate degree in organic chemistry. In the future, she aspires to work in a medicinal lab, designing drugs and drug delivery systems.

Matich, Eryn

Eryn Matich is a chemistry major and biology minor at Alfred University, in Alfred, New York.   She was a chemistry REU student working with the Banaszak Holl group for summer 2012.  She worked with Flora Fang and Elizabeth Goldstein on the self assembly of Type 1 collagen.

Borgmeier, Emilee

Emilee graduated from  Michigan with degrees in Neuroscience and Spanish. She was part of the Banaszak Holl group for three years, working with Doug Mullen, on the synthesis and characterization of functionalized PAMAM dendrimers as targeted drug delivery agents.  Emilee obtained her M.D. at the Indiana University School of Medicine and is currently a resident in anesthesia at the  University of Utah medical school.

Chen, Qishui (Tracy)

Tracy is a graduate student at Columbia University working in the Nuckolls group. She spent the summer of 2009 at UM working on AFM imaging of collagen in mouse tissues with Joey and Flora. Outside of the lab, Tracy enjoys swimming and playing the violin.

Barash, Mark

Mark Barash  graduated from UM and the Program in the Environment. He  worked on synthesis and purification of PAMMAM Dendrimer compounds to be used as targeted drug delivery systems with Doug Mullen. In his spare time Mark enjoys jogging, reading and has been involved in the Martial arts for 15 years. He is currently applying to Medical School.

Nieh, Christina

Christina is a first-year student at the University of Michigan, who intends to study Chemistry. She is currently working with the Banaszak Holl group on an organometallics project. Outside of the lab and her classes, she enjoys playing violin or viola and writing poetry.
