Alex Hendricks

B.S. Chemistry, University of Minnesota Twin Cities

CSU graduate program starting date: August 2017

Research Interests: Directed evolution of biomolecules. Currently developing an evolution platform to enable engineering of metal/metalloid reductase activity (‘Clonable Nanoparticle’ project). Long term, my goal is to engineer a library of Clonable Nanoparticles that selectively act upon varying metal/metalloid substrates. In turn, this may allow ‘colorful’ gene reporting in electron microscopy, analogous to the toolbox of fluorescent proteins available for fluorescence microscopies.

Some Personal Interests: Bouldering, painting/art, outdoor activities, bass music shows
