Saaem Bags Cover of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces Journal

2010 - Biomedical engineering graduate student Ishtiaq Saaem earned the cover of the Feb. 24 ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces Journal with a paper titled “In situ Synthesis of DNA Microarrayon Functionalized Cyclic Olefin Copolymer Substrate.” Saaem, who works with Assistant Professor Jingdong Tian, developed a new method to enable synthesis of high-quality and low-cost COC DNA microarrays and also provide a basis for further development of integrated microfluidics microarrays for a broad range of bioanalytical and biofabrication applications.
