Elizabeth Kras, 6th-year PhD student in Dr. Morrow's lab
My research is focuses on the design and development of novel iron (III) macrocyclic compounds for use at T1 MRI contrast agents. Currently, I am focused on studying how changing a single coordinating pendant effects the relaxivity of these compounds by using variable field strength NMR and MRI.
I enjoy being a part of such a welcoming and cooperative department. I feel whether it’s another graduate student or faculty, everyone is willing to talk with you and help out where they can. I have also made some of my best friends through fellow students in the department.
Outside of the lab I enjoy playing dungeons and dragons, doing puzzles, and watching ice hockey as often as I can.
