Bioengineering undergrads Rina Parmeshwar and Michelle Su-Yu Tsai took two of the top prizes at the Science and Engineering Poster Session last month. Held in the Hearst Mining Memorial Building lobby, the Science and Engineering Poster Session offers the opportunity for students in engineering or the sciences at Berkeley to present their research to faculty, staff and fellow students. Lunch is served and prizes awarded for the three best posters.
Michelle’s winning poster was titled 3-D Endothelium-lined Microfabricated Channels as in vitro Assays for Vaso-occlusion in Sickle Cell Disease and Rina’s was In vitro and In vivo Characterization of Novel Affibody-based Chimeric Proteins for Targeted Therapy of HER2-Positive Breast Cancers. This is the nnth poster session win in a row for BioE students.
Congrats Rina and Michelle!
