High school student starts research career early by focusing on nanoparticles found in sunscreen

Abstract:
Sunscreen is something most folks can't live without in the Southwest. But the very product that is protecting human skin from harmful solar rays could be wreaking havoc on the environment because of one ingredient.

Researchers at ASU have been studying the impact of nanoparticles, such as titanium dioxide/oxide (TiO2), which is found in sunscreen and many other products, on aquatic organisms. With so much to study in the way of nanoparticles, they agreed to enlist the help of a rather curious high school student.

Jingyuan Luo, a Hamilton High School senior, volunteered her time during her junior year because of her love for research.
