New technique to clean contact lenses published

May 26, 2020

Work led by ChBE undergraduate Katherine Burgener on removing pollutants from contact lenses is published now in Contact Lens and Anterior Eye. Kate began research in the BhamlaLab in 2017 as an undergraduate. She will start her doctoral studies in molecular and environmental toxicology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in fall 2020.
