BioE MEng student Khowa Agbojo talks about her career transition into bioengineering and desire to create opportunities for people in the developing world.
An MEng capstone team of bioengineers and mechanical engineers designed a level-controlled cooling bath to precisely freeze biomaterials as they are printed, providing the bioink with the structural integrity needed to support larger structures and ensuring living cellular material is preserved.
An MEng capstone team of BioE, ME and IEOR students developed a smart device to track patients’ eye drop medication adherence.
This project by a team of Bioengineering and Mechanical Engineering MEng students uses machine learning techniques to allow the EvoWalk to analyze patients’ gait patterns and provide a personalized stimulation algorithm that most efficiently improves their walking outcome.
Master of Engineering students in BioE and Mechanical Engineering have developed GaitTrac, providing wireless, real-time gait analysis for clinical gait diagnosis through seven custom motion sensors.
Bioengineering Master of Engineering students discovering inaccurate extracted information from unstructured Clinical notes using Natural Language Processing.
The 2020 Fung Institute Technical Leadership Capstone Award for 2020 went to the “Smart eye-drop bottle to monitor medication habits of glaucoma patients” capstone team, including BioE student Fang-Jhen Su.
The “Precision Freezing 3D Bioprinter for Large Scale Tissue Engineering” Master of Engineering capstone team won this year’s Most Innovative Project Award from the Fung Institute. The team designed a level-controlled cooling bath to precisely freeze biomaterials as they are printed. This new approach allows for larger printed structures than previously possible.
Congratulations to the MEng teams who have won end-of-year capstone awards! The Biomimetic Hydrogels to Enhance Tissue Modelling of Brain Cancer team of Jonathan Evans and Julia Lanoha won the Technical Leadership Capstone Award, the Precision Freezing 3D Bioprinter for Large Scale Tissue Engineering team of Alex Wolcott [BIOE], Martin Banet-Rivet [ME], Pablo Amor [ME] and Ruobin Liu [ME], and the Novel Implant for Regulating Excessive Eye Pressure in Glaucoma Patients team of Charit Mehta [ME], Aishwarya Pamula [BIOE], Sheila Sharifzad [BIOE], won the MEng Alumni Award for the Most Innovative Project.
