The Bioengineering Division sponsors a Student Paper Competition at the annual Summer Bioengineering Conference (SBC). There are three competition levels: Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. The competition is divided into multiple technical areas to provide for a fair evaluation of student work. There are also cash awards for the top three student papers in each area. We are pleased to recognize the following awardees from the 2013 SBC.
First Place: Ryan G. Koch, University of Pittsburgh, “A Custom Image-Based Analysis Tool for Quantifying Elastin and Collagen Fiber Micro-Architecture in the Wall of the Human Aorta from Multi-Photon Microscopy Images.”
Second Place: David M. Kingsley, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, “A Novel, Laser-Based Technique To Fabricate and Pattern Cell-Encapsulated Alginate Microbeads.”
Third Place: Natalie K. Craik, University of Texas, Austin, “Persistence of Cryotherapy Induced Ischemia for Hours after Cooling Ends.”
First Place: Mahta Baghoolizadeh, Stanford...
