Deni also participates in two undergraduate research projects. One of which is exploring topics about Di-Electrophoresis. In this research she is looking to separate cancerous cells from regular healthy cells. In the upcoming semester she is looking at creating a sequence of DNA and attaching the DNA to separate a cancerous polystyrene beads from a noncancerous polystyrene bead within a sample. Osteoinfiltration, the other research she is the team leader for is looking at ways to create a new form of dental implant created from a ceramic material. She states that this implant will allow the bone cells to infiltrate into the implant and make the implant part of your mouth.
