ASU is a place to be for energy research

1 Nov 2013

Dayn Sommer is a graduate student in the Lab of Giovanna Ghirlanda at ASU BISfuel Center. The focus of his project is the proton reduction catalyst site of the bio-inspired fuel cell that is being designed in the Center. Specific aspect of the project is constructing a chemical interface enabling delivery of electrons to the catalysts. “We are trying to build artificial protein modules with different potentials that are able to shuttle electrons to the proton-reduction catalysts....ASU is a place to be for photosynthesis and energy research. EFRC is just helping ASU to be in the forefront of the energy research. This definitely helped me to choose ASU as opposed to other schools..."
