A team of BioE Master of Engineering students took first place in the campus Big Ideas competition for their ENOSE non-invasive blood sugar monitoring system, while BioE undergraduate capstone teams took 3rd place and an honorable mention.
ENOSE team members Patrick Lyon, Benson Fan, Yayun Chen, Ray Chiu worked with Bioe professor Seung-Wuk Lee to develop a colorimetric sensor that could provide an inexpensive, non-invasive test for determining the level of glucose in a patient’s blood. The team took first place in the Information Technology for Society category of the campuswide competition, sponsored by the The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS).
The Aeolus team of Vinayak Viswanadham, Brian Dick, Yumi Suh, Adrian Tabula worked together in BioE professor Amy Herr’s senior capstone design course on a new method for instantly detecting Narcotics-Induced Respiratory Depression in hospital patients. The groups received an honorable mention in the Information Technology for Society category.
Another capstone team working on “Uniting Mother and Child: A Battle Against Postpartum Hemorrhage” took third place in the Global Poverty Alleviation category, sponsored by USAID and the Blum Center for Developing Economies. The work originally done by team members Sandeep Prabhu, Atri Choksi, Alish Manandhar, and Rebecca Farr aims to reduce the overwhelming rates of maternal mortality associated with PPH in developing countries by creating a pressure detecting and reporting device for the common anti-shock garment.
