Fei Xiong is a Biology major. She is studying Neuropeptidase conformation with flouescence polarization. A special fluorescent probe will be bound to the enzyme, and changes will result in changes in rotational speed which will be detected by polarization. Her mentor is David Rodgers in the department of Biochemistry.
