|Christine K. Payne Ph.D. |
Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry
|Saheli Sarkar |
Saheli earned her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University and her M.S. from Drexel University. While at Case Western, Saheli worked in the group of Prof. Harihara Baskaran on the migration of cancer and stromal cells in microfabricated platforms. At Georgia Tech, Saheli is doing a joint post-doc with the Payne and Kemp labs, and will be studying the intracellular transport of proteins necessary for redox signaling.
|Steven Hira |
Steve earned a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Florida State University. During his Ph.D., Steve worked under Prof. Geoffrey F. Strouse on imaging biomaterials for cellular delivery and developing biosensing devices. Currently, he is working on the intracellular synthesis of conducting polymer nanowires.
Candace earned her M.S. and B.S. in Chemistry from Western Washington University. In the Payne Lab, she is studying nanoparticle-protein interactions.
