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 work in the lab focuses on exploring the therapeutic and diagnostic utility of novel bio-sourced macromolecules. Additionally, Atip is investigating various templated and self-assembling biomaterials for the delivery of RNA cargoes.

 

 

Matthew Aronson

individual-matthewMatthew is a sophomore Schreyer’s Honors Scholar at Penn State working towards a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Matthew’s current research interests center on the design of fusolytic particles for localized delivery of anticancer and antibacterial peptides.

 

 

 

 

Agustey Mongia

individual-agusteyAgustey is a junior Schreyer’s Honors Scholar at Penn State working towards a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Previously, he interned at the Cancer Institute at Hershey Medical Center, working on antibody targeting and diagnostic methods for melanoma. Agustey also spent time studying genomics and eukaryotic transcription regulation in the laboratory of Dr. Frank Pugh. Agustey’s work in the Medina Group centers of the design of novel antimicrobial peptides and discovery of synergistic combinations of peptides and clinically approved antibiotics. 

 

 

Samuel Ajamu

individual-unavailableSamuel is a senior Schreyer’s Honors Scholar at Penn State working towards a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Samuel’s research in the Medina Group has led to the development of peptide-based nanoclusters for improved MRI imaging. 

 

 

 

 

Danial Nasirullah

individual-unavailableDanial is a junior Schreyer’s Honors Scholar at Penn State working towards a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Danial’s current research explores the biochemical underpinnings of a unique surfactant-protein interaction recently discovered in the group. Using the insights from these initial studies he hopes to design new ultrasound-guided protein delivery modalities for  biosensing and therapeutic applications.

 

 

 

Shohini Banerjee

Shohini is a freshman Schreyer’s Honors Scholar at Penn State working towards a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Shohini’s research in the Medina Group seeks to elucidate the structure-activity relationships that define the assembly of biohybrid particles developed in the group, and apply  these new materials for microbiome engineering
