Faculty Mentor: Michael Jewett
Anne d’Aquino received a B.S.
, in biochemistry from Western Washington University. Her research is currently focused on studying and engineering the ribosome. This research involves mapping ribosomal mutations within the active site , and is important for use in future applications, like ribosomal synthesis of nanomaterials and therapeutics.
