A team of three undergraduate students from Missouri S&T recently won a $15,000 first-place award at the Regnier Venture Creation Challenge in Kansas City for their project titled “Foliagraft.” Foliagraft is a new way to use spinach leaves and stem cells to help burn patients and others with wounds and conditions that require a skin graft.
The student team consisted of Abby Knoesel, a junior in chemical engineering from Wildwood, Missouri; Madison Husereau, a senior in biological sciences from Robertsville, Missouri; and Aiden Armstrong, a junior in biological sciences from Maplewood, Missouri. They were advised by Dr. Julie Semon, an associate professor of biological sciences at Missouri S&T.
