Mentor: Dr. Todd Brusko
College of Medicine
"As an undergraduate interested pursuing a career in the healthcare field, I was interested to know different aspects of medicine, including the academic research behind it. I also wanted to experience volunteering in a research lab dedicated to Type I Diabetes and further develop my problem-solving skills and lab techniques. Becoming a part of research at the University of Florida has been an enriching and wonderful experience."

Optimization of Nanoparticles
Under Dr. Brusko’s mentorship and the supervision of graduate student Judit Cserny, I will study the optimization of nanoparticles. These nanoparticles could be potentially used in a vaccine to support T regulatory cells that could restore normal immunity in patients with Type 1 Diabetes.
