Jayesh Sonje, a graduate student at the University of Minnesota in Dr. Raj Suryanarayanan’s lab, received a travel grant for performing small angle neutron scattering experiments to understand protein aggregation in frozen systems. The outreach program encourages first-time users, provides them with essential educational opportunity to visit the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) facility in Maryland, and enables them to carry out experiments with the guidance of NIST scientific staff.
Professor Changquan “Calvin” Sun is being honored for his many contributions in the study of excipients and excipient-related technology.
