Team AloeSporin is a Class of 2024 undergraduate research team within the University of Maryland, College Park Gemstone Honors Program.
AloeSporin aims to create a cut-and-scrape ointment that can combat bacterial growth and stimulate the rate of skin cell regeneration. Ultimately, the team will add data and research to the field of antibiotics and plant medicine in hopes of contributing to the search for a solution to antibiotic resistance.
Thanks to everyone who supported our project during our first LaunchUMD, our team is in the process of ordering reagents to start our first round of experiments by mid-March!
We are excited to return to Launch for Giving Day 2023, where your support will enable our team to further develop our experiments to collect data over the summer, attend conferences to share our work, and seek publication towards the end of 2024.
Your support will give us the unique opportunity to conduct research as undergraduate students, and aid in our contribution to new medical discoveries in the early stages of our careers.
