posted Sep 22, 2018, 9:40 AM by Wayne Curtis
Michelle Brincat, Honors BS ChE '96.  She was back in State College with her oldest son (of 3 boys) visiting colleges.  Her honors thesis was on plant tissue culture nutrient uptake ... where she contributed to many things during her several years in the lab.  Michelle had made the observations of inhibition of root hairs while working with a oxygen sensing dye for measuring mass transfer limitations in root tissue; this became the MS thesis topic of Julie Bordonaro (see Acknowledgements, Biotechnology Bioengineering paper), where this publication was noted in a news article in the Journal Nature !
