John Casey, Jr.
I am a fifth year Biological Engineering student at LSU, and this is my fifth year in Monroe Lab. I have previously focused on ligament graft reconstruction and fixation, but now am investigating site-specific modification of oligonucleotides for use with photocage chemistry and the utilization of ultraviolet LEDs therewith.
