BME students make presentations at conferences
June 20, 2013
Biomedical engineering master's program students made presentations at multiple annual conferences this past academic year.
Liang Chen, a second-year BME student, made an oral presentation entitled "Novel ex vivo test model for colonoscopic monopolar hot biopsy forceps" at the Design of Medical Devices Conference in Minneapolis. Chen is lead author on the work. Co-authors include BME faculty members Ramiro Malgor and JungHun Choi, who is Chen's advisor.
Peiyu Zhang, also a second-year BME student, made the poster presentation "MIC of 304 stainless steel accelerated by electron transfer shuttles" in Orlando, Fla., at the meeting of NACE International (formerly known as the National Association of Corrosion Engineers). Her advisor is Tingyue Gu.
In Washington, D.C., at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting, second-year BME student Eric Martin made a poster presentation as lead author on "Dynamic biochemical tissue analysis of P-selectin ligands expressed on colon cancer." Co-authors include Malgor, Doug Goetz, and Martin's advisor, Monica Burdick, all of the BME faculty.
BME program graduate Grady Carlson, now a chemical engineering PhD candidate in Burdick's lab, presented "Dynamic biochemical tissue analysis provides a unique method to detect functional in situ L-selectin ligands and unveils intercellular heterogeneity in colon cancer tissues." Co-authors include Malgor, Goetz, and Burdick.
The BME program also was well-represented by students and faculty at the Biomedical Engineering Society annual meeting.
