Bioengineering doctoral graduate Emily Krull received a first-place award for her graphical abstract presentation at the Biomaterials for Medical Devices and Regenerative Medicine workshop held in Bordeaux, France this past June.  The workshop was organized by the Society of Biomaterials (SFB) and the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB) and provides a week-long didactic and practical learning experience addressing biomaterials for medical devices and regenerative materials with an emphasis on promoting an international exchange.  Congratulations to Emily for another outstanding performance!  Her faculty advisor and mentor is Dr. Aisling Coughlan.

Congratulations to Bioengineering undergraduate, Aaron Lehman, and this team partners, Mohammad Hamza Owais (UT EECS -MS student), Safia Rahmat (UT EECS MS student), & Luke Belinc (Wayne State University, undergraduate).  They participated in the 24 Hour AngelHack Competition (DHACK 2018) in Detroit that took place at Wayne State University on June 23-24. They won 1st place in the Fitbit Challenge and placed 2nd in the Advanced Category for their “Keeping Up” project which focuses on the development of assistance technologies to provide further analysis of data collected from wearable devices to provide users a clearer view of their physiological status which can lead to more mindful health practices.  Their faculty advisor is Dr. Scott Pappada who is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Bioengineering and Anesthesiology.  The team posed for a photo with their awards while at the event (Left to Right: Mohammad Hamza Owais, Aaron Lehman, Safia Rahmat, & Luke Belinc).
