Jasmine Hershewe received a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Nevada, Reno and a M.S. in Biotechnology from Northwestern University. Her work is currently focused on fabricating self-assembled protein particles, as well as studying a process termed “glycosylation” (a common biochemical modification of proteins). This research involves cell-free systems, protein biochemistry, and use of nanotechnology techniques. This work is important for both fundamental understanding of biomolecular processes, and could potentially be applied to make next-generation therapeutics and anti-microbial vaccines.
