UCSC undergraduates win awards at statewide research symposium

Debra Ortiz was recognized for her work on the interactions of semiconductor quantum dots with biomolecules. Ortiz works with Jin Zhang, professor of chemistry and biochemistry, whose research focuses on nanomaterials with novel physical and chemical properties. Ortiz's project is part of an investigation of bioconjugation of semiconductor quantum dots to proteins for biomedical detection based on photoluminescence. Her talk was entitled "CdTe quantum dot interactions with yeast in the absence of a specific binding molecule."
