Cancer Research Student Named Goldwater Scholar, Deciphers Molecular Communication to Aid Anti-Cancer Drug Delivery

Wednesday April 11, 2012

Like playing a blindfolded game of “3-D Tetris” with molecules, Kansas State University’s 68th Barry M. Goldwater Scholar is feeling her way through supramolecular chemistry.

Angela Grommet, junior in chemistry, Wichita, would like to remove the metaphorical blindfold by researching how molecules bind to form complex structures known as supramolecules. The science gained popularity in 1987 when three chemists were awarded the Nobel Prize for their work in the field, however there is little documented knowledge on the variety of ways supramolecules synthesize.
