Research in the Lockett group focuses on the development of analytical model systems to: i) chemically modify the surface of thin films, and study chemical and biochemical reactions occurring on those surfaces; ii) study drug metabolism in an environment that closely mimics the human liver; iii) measure tumor invasion in an environment that closely mimics human tissue.
While these problems require techniques found in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, bioengineering, and surface science we are particularly interested in the technologies that allow us to quantitatively measure reactions and analytes.
The Latest News...
Welcome to all newly accepted graduate students! We are excited you are here. Group meetings for the fall semester have not been determined yet, however we encourage each you to come talk with us. We are actively looking for students interested in 3D cultures for studying drug metabolism; 3D tumor models; and modified electrodes, materials chemistry, and surface modification and characterization.
Matt presented the group's work at High Point University Department of Chemistry seminar.
Matt attended the Bioanalytical Sensors GRC, and presented a poster on the group's 3D culture efforts.
Congratulations to Rachael on passing her second year preliminary oral exam!
Congratulations to Christian on receiving the Freeze Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship!
