BME student wins first place in Student Expo session
June 7, 2013
Peiyu Zhang, a second-year student in the biomedical engineering master's program, was awarded first place in her chemical and biomolecular engineering session of the annual Ohio University Student Research and Creative Activity Expo.Her poster title was "MIC of 304 stainless steel accelerated by electron transfer shuttles."
Zhang conducts research in the laboratory of Tingyue Gu, who studies microbiologically influenced corrosion and bioseparations.
The event was held May 13 at the Convocation Center and featured more than 600 students and 500 projects. There were 83 sessions and 57 categories. Zhang's session was one of four in the chemical and biomedical engineering category.
Grady Carlson, a graduate of the BME master's program, won first place in another chemical and biomolecular engineering session for his poster "Dynamic biochemical tissue analysis provides a unique method to detect functional in situ L-selectin ligands and unveils intercellular heterogeneity in colon cancer tissues." Carlson, now a PhD candidate in chemical engineering, conducts research in the lab of Monica Burdick.
