Team AloeSporin is a Class of 2024 undergraduate research team within the University of Maryland, College Park Gemstone Honors Program. AloeSporin aims to create a cut-and-scrape ointment that can combat bacterial growth and stimulate the rate of skin cell regeneration. Ultimately, the team will add data and research to the field of antibiotics and plant-based medicine in hopes of inspiring innovative ways to tackle bacterial infections.
Currently, the team is investigating the properties of aloe vera gel. Does aloe vera gel have antibacterial and skin regenerative properties when applied topically?
