Chemistry graduate student Sarah Lum recently won the Young Scientist Award at the MSB 2017 conference, a gathering of scientists in the Netherlands that focuses on microscale separations and bioanalysis. The Young Scientist Award was established to recognize researchers under the age of 35 in the field who set an outstanding example for other scientists. The award specifically recognizes Lum’s work on developing new forensics technology.
Researchers have discovered a way to make influenza visible to the naked eye, by engineering dye molecules to target a specific enzyme of the virus.
The research fellowships were awarded to undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. students from the University of Notre Dame and from five universities in Ireland.
