I am a bioengineering student at the University of Utah and am working on my undergraduate and graduate degree in a dual MS/BS program. I currently am working on a micro-fluidic lipid extraction device. This device centers around automating the Folch Extraction which is a process that extracts lipids from blood or plasma. The goal in automating this process is to provide a quick screening method for the Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome (SLOS).
