Congratulations to Shiv Bhandari, Jeremy Housekeeper, and Alex Vaschillo who have won Washington Research Fellowships!
Shiv Bhandari works in the Murray lab at the UW Department of Pathology. His research is dedicated to developing stem-cell therapies for myocardial infarctions. Shiv is currently engineering a device to simulate the mechanical environment of the heart.
Jeremy Housekeeper works in the lab of Professor Christine Luscombe in Materials Science and Engineering. He is currently working on the development of next-generation materials and synthetic techniques for organic electronics applications.
His current project focuses on the synthesis of dithienothiophene (DTT) and other molecules through C-H activation.
Alex Vaschillo works in the Masiello Group in the UW Department of Chemistry. His research studies the collective oscillations of conduction electrons in metal nanoparticles known as localized surface plasmon resonances (LSPRs). The LSPRs have been the source of much scientific study over the last decade due to their immediate and significant applications in chemical catalysis, drug delivery, and cancer reduction therapy.
Congratulations Shiv, Jeremy and Alex!
