Undergraduate Students

Atip Lawanprasert

individual-atipAtip is a senior Schreyer’s Honors Scholar at Penn State working towards a degree in Biomedical Engineering. He has previously worked on blood coagulation on materials surfaces and cellular toxicity of nanoparticle formulations. Atip’s initial work in our lab has focused on assessing the bioactivity of novel anti-cancer molecules against various cell lines. Additionally, he has since begun investigating various templated and self-assembling biomaterials for the delivery of bioactive cargo.
