As part of an international research partnership award, graduate student Amber Bratcher recently traveled to Belfast in Northern Ireland.
While there, she will be conducting red tide detection research with collaborator, Dr. Chris Elliot at the Institute of Agri-Food and Land Use at Queen's University.
While at Queens, she will be making comparisons using different surface plasmon resonance (SPR) platforms and comparing different assay chemistries for developing a more efficient biosensor to detect the harmful marine dinoflagellete Alexandrium.
