Summer 2012 REU Poster: Affinity and Multimodal Membranes for Protein Chromatography

Monday, July 30, 2012 1:30pm - 1:50pm EDT  
Host: Affinity and Multimodal Membranes
By: Phil Langford, REU Program 2012, Clemson University and Stephen A. Giles, REU Program 2012, Clemson University

Past work has shown that regenerated cellulose (RC) membranes can be functionalized with polymer nanolayers via atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) to produce high capacity protein adsorbers. These functionalized membranes have shown competitive binding capacities at a drastically increased throughput compared to the costly industry standard resin chromatography media.

I am Stephen Giles. I was born in Birmingham, Alabama, and grew up in the small town of Fultondale, Alabama. I am a Senior in Chemical Engineering at Auburn University. I intend to enroll in a Chemical Engineering Ph.D. program for the Fall of 2013. Back at Auburn, I am busy with two research projects (one focused on alternative energy applications, and the other focused on MicroElectroMachined Systems (MEMS)), and I am also Associate Editor of the Auburn University Journal of Undergraduate Scholarship (AUJUS).

My hobbies include: watching old movies, trivia, reading, and sleeping.
