ADELPHI, Md. (June 9, 2016) — With a passion for biochemistry, U.S. Army Research Laboratory chemist and postdoctoral research fellow Dr. Sasha Teymorian works to further knowledge and technology, while helping to protect Soldiers on the battlefield. Teymorian works in ARL”s Weapons and Materials Research Directorate at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, where the goal of one of her current projects is to aid in the identification of cellular injuries sustained by warfighters in combat. “One of the projects I am working on is the synthesis of gold nanoclusters conjugated to various proteins,” Teymorian said. “These bio-stabilized gold nanoclusters exhibit interesting fluorescent properties, and I am working to understand how various external factors such as changes in temperature and pressure influence their fluorescence.”
