Andrea Padron is a 4th year PhD student in the Biochemistry and Cell Biology program and a member of the Silberg Lab. Her research is centered around the creation of a bioelectronic system that uses small molecule redox mediators to “wire” an electrode to a cytosolic oxidoreductase in order to control energy transfer across the cell-material interface. Andrea plans to continue her career as an industry scientist after completion of her degree.
