Anna Ampaw

I am a 4th year PhD student at the University of Ottawa in the Chemistry department. My research focuses on discovering and synthesizing small molecule carbohydrates that will inhibit ice growth during the cryopreservation of biological samples. By decreasing the growth of ice we will decrease the damage that occurs during freezing and thawing, therefore …
