Nikki Huynh is majoring in biomedical sciences at UCF and is on the molecular microbiology track for her major. She currently researches Clostridium Difficile under the mentorship of Dr. William Self. The project entails utilizing an antimicrobial that is secreted from corals, Pupenhenone, to see its potency on the bacterium, C. difficile. Using different concentrations of the antimicrobials, the minimum inhibition concentration (MIC) can be identified for the targeted Clostridium Difficile. In the future, Nikki will pursue a master’s degree in microbiology or food sciences. She hopes to have a career in biotechnology or a food related industry.
