Oliver Hamto is a rising senior. His research in the Boxer lab focuses on a fluorescent protein that emits in the red zone of the visible spectrum: mCherry. The study aims to apply mCherry constructs to split protein methods previously developed in the same lab for green fluorescent proteins. In his spare time, he likes to get involved with the Pilipino-American community on- and off-campus.
