Hello! My name is Cynthia Ge. I am a junior majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Molecular and Cellular Biology. I am currently an undergraduate researcher in Dr. Minkyu Kim’s Lab. We are working to develop a method to produce keratin proteins using the E. coli bacteria. The manufactured keratin will be used for percutaneous osseo-integrated prosthetic devices and other biomedical purposes.
Outside of the lab I am involved in various clubs and organizations on campus. I am currently a part of Tau Beta Pi, the Medical Devices Club, and the Society of Women Engineers. I also enjoy drawing, crocheting stuffed animals, and baking.
This episode of Thesis Thursday was recorded hosted and produced by Bridgitte Thum.
Music is from Crowander, “Your Eyes”
