On May 18, 2014, Ryan Oliver and Ryan Lo received their PhD at the Chemistry Graduation Ceremony.

They successfully defended their theses earlier in the Spring semester. Dr. Ryan Lo’s thesis entitled “Spectroscopic Studies of Membrane Protein Structure, Dynamics, and Function” focused on investigations of Opa proteins involved in the engulfment of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
Dr. Ryan Oliver’s thesis entitled “Structural determination of membrane mimics using small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering” focused on determining the properties of detergents that are important in stabilizing membrane proteins for structural and functional studies.
