Simona Gavrilovici is a senior at Millersville University, graduating with a B.S. in Chemistry. She started this project because she was required to complete a semester of independent research. After she started, Simona realized she really enjoyed her analytical research on aptamers and wanted to continue her project. She is happy with how far her research has gone since the start of it back in Fall 2018, and she is making new discoveries with each day that her project continues. Simona’s goals for this project was to develop a biosensor using aptamers. In the future, she will continue learning about electrochemical spectroscopic methods and biosensors. She will carry with her newfound knowledge on these topics into graduate school which she will start attending in Fall 2020 at Northeastern University College of Science. That is where she will begin her work in the PhD in chemistry program that they offer there.
