Clarkson University Student Receives Travel Award to Present Nanoparticle Research at Electrochemical Society Meeting

Clarkson University chemistry doctoral student Anahita Karimi has received a travel award to share her research in June at the Electrochemical Society (ECS) Meeting in San Diego.

Anahita KarimiThis will be the second time that Karimi, who is in her third year of graduate study, presents her work in an area that is regarded as a powerful method for understanding events linked with nanoparticles.

“I feel grateful for having won the grant and for the support that the Electrochemical Society is offering me. This is a great opportunity that will allow me to share the science and experiences with other scientists,” Karimi says.
Professor of Chemistry & Biomolecular Science Silvana Andreescu, the Egon Matijevic Endowed Chair in Chemistry, is Karimi's adviser.

“Anahita is working on a very exciting project involving the use of electrochemistry to characterize nanoparticles and nanoparticle-biomolecule conjugates with single molecule detection capabilities," says Andreescu. "Her work is important and I am extremely happy to see it recognized by the Electrochemical Society, because it can lead to the development of novel techniques to study molecular binding events and enable advances in biodetection, therapeutic and diagnostic applications. It is also a great opportunity for Anahita to disseminate her work, and meet and discuss it with leading scientists in this field.”

Clarkson University educates the leaders of the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as an owner, CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. With its main campus located in Potsdam, New York, and additional graduate program and research facilities in the Capital Region and Beacon, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university with signature areas of academic excellence and research directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through more than 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, education, sciences and the health professions, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo and connect discovery and innovation with enterprise.
