Christian Graefe receives Torske Klubben Fellowship

Christian Graefe, a second-year graduate student working with Professor Renee Frontiera, has received a Torske Klubben Fellowship.

Christian’s research involves a new label-free super-resolution imaging technique that has been developed based on stimulated Raman spectroscopy with ideas from stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy. His research interests include using our new technique to investigate cellular interactions on the nanoscale. He is particularly interested in determining what factors influence cellular uptake of pollutants and pharmaceutical agents.

Torske Klubben was founded in 1933, and is a Minneapolis luncheon club of men of Norwegian heritage who are interested in Norway and Norwegian-American history and relationships. The fellowship supports graduate students who have an interest in or connection with Norway and its culture. The fellowship includes a stipend of $15,000.
