Raha Saremi (left) and Darya Asheghali (right)

Raha Saremi, a Ph.D. student and graduate research assistant within the textiles, merchandising and interiors department, received funds for her project that involves an environmentally friendly dyeing technique that uses nano-cellulose gels that would eliminate the need for a significant amount of water.

Darya Asheghali, a student in the UGA department of chemistry, received funding for her project that studies enzyme stability on PGMA (polyglycidyl methacrylate) nanofibers, which has potential implications for drug delivery and other biomedical purposes.
