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.

Welcome to all newly accepted graduate students! We are excited you are here. Group meetings are Thursday mornings from 8:30 - 11:00am in Caudill 321 (starting September 8). Please feel free to join 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 on 3D cell cultures at MUACC, which was held at U. Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
Catherine and Julia's paper is accepted at Langmuir!
