Mitra’s work on biocidal polymers from bile acids is published on Bioactive Materials journal. See the publications page for details.
Mitra was awarded the “Excellence in Graduate Polymer Research” distinction during the American Chemical Society 252nd National Meeting
Mitra won the ACS POLY Outstanding Poster Award for his poster entitled “Converting natural biomass to amphiphilic antimicrobial polymers in solution and on surfaces.”
Mitra was selected as the recipient of the prestigious College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Dissertation Fellowship for 2016-2017. The fellowship provides $25,000 support for the final year of dissertation preparation!
Congratulations to Louis! He won the Magellan Scholarship for undergraduate research.
I was selected as the president of the ACS POLY/PMSE Student Chapter at USC for 2015-2016. http://www.sc.edu/study/colleges_schools/chemistry_and_biochemistry/about/news/aug_31_15_acs_poly_officers.php
We studied the antimicrobial and biocompatible properties of cationic resin acid compounds and polymers immobilized on surfaces. The research paper is now online. Ganewatta M. S.; Miller K.

Louis Mercardo, a junior chemistry major joined our research group. I will mentor him on a new project.
My first undergraduate student joined Cornell University to pursue his PhD. He will be working with Prof. Brett P. Fors.
My first review paper was published in Polymer journal. Ganewatta M. S.; Tang C.* Controlling Macromolecular Structures towards Effective Antimicrobial Polymers. Polymer, 2015, 63, A1-A29. It was a great experience for me and made me more confident about my writing skills. Gladly, we got a free cover page as well.
