Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Characterization of Jamaican Fungal Pathogen and Remediation Techniques for Microbes
by Miller, Roland Mitchell, M.S., State University of New York at Binghamton, 2020, 269; 27837650
Abstract (Summary)

There are many emerging problems that are going to surface in the next few decades to come whether that is global warming, declining food supply, or resistant microbes. Microbes are becoming more and more resistant to commonly used methods for remediation. Fungi can rapidly adapt to fungicides and become resistant to that fungicide. Currently, cancer cells are becoming resistant to commercial treatments. With all of these microbes becoming resistant to common treatment methods, the need for new and different treatment methods is a huge focus in science.

This work is divided into three parts; the first portion focuses on a problem that is affecting Jamaican crops and then looking at compounds and nanoparticles for their antifungal properties. The second portion focuses on the testing of compounds and synthesis of nanoparticles for antibacterial properties, and the third portion of this dissertation focuses on the use of flavonoid based nanoparticles for anticancer properties.
