Project: Synthesis and Biological Investigation of Oral Microbiome Antibiotics

Bio: Amber was born in Phoenix, Arizona and completed her undergraduate studies at Barnard College where she studied novel methods for the synthesis of 2-amino sugars with Professor Christian Rojas. She’s interested in using organic synthesis to solve biological problems, making the Wuest lab a perfect fit. Out of the lab, she likes to play with the world’s most precious angels, Pip Cheng and Harper Post. She’s currently looking for a hobby– please tweet @AmberScharnow if you have ideas.
