Two Coulter teams take home awards in fall semester Capstone Design competition
The two award-winning Coulter Department teams were Cold and Bold, which won the interdisciplinary award for its cold cap to prevent hair loss for patients undergoing chemotherapy, and Nasaid, which took top honors in the biomedical engineering category.
Two teams of Georgia Tech students brought home the top prizes at Hack ATL, the largest undergraduate business “hackathon” in the Southeast. The first place team developed a mobile app called Divy, which allows groups to seamlessly track their expenses and issue reimbursements. Divy removes all the frustrations of financially settling up after a weekend trip or class project. Team members Garrett Wallace, John Riley, and Ryan Brooks were awarded a cash prize of $7,000 along with a potential $100,000 investment from the Seraph Group.Wallace, a biomedical engineering (BME) major, said his team signed up for the competition because they thought it would be a fun way to spend the weekend. But, as the weekend went on, he said they realized what they were developing had great potential.
The Georgia Tech Communic-AID team submitted their idea to this global technology challenge and are now one of ten global UNICEF team finalists. The team, Communic-AID, developed a wearable device that facilitates record keeping, aids in the tracking of medications that have been distributed in a post-disaster context and allows the patient to take part in their treatment. The BME student project team members are Katie Fiedler, William Higgins, Heather Issen, Madison Lewis, and Isabelle Vernon.
Six Georgia Tech biomedical engineering (BME) students won the best design category among teams developing solutions for an improved epidural delivery system. They were competing in the Biomedical Engineering Society’s (BMES) Coulter College event held August 13-16, 2015 in Coral Gables, Florida. More than 60 teams apply for the competition, but only a third of them are invited to participate. BME’s winning team consisted of Emma Mihevc, Cory Turbyfield, Joshua Bugica, Alex Hubbard, Emma Poe-Yamagata, and Will McAllister. They were competing against Johns Hopkins, Boston University, Florida State, and other notable programs.
Petit Scholar and mentor work on simple solution to complex problem.
Wang is a Petit Undergraduate Research Scholar in the lab of Wilbur Lam, and Mannino, a grad student and a former Petit Scholar, is his mentor. The two biomedical engineering students, with a team of researchers in the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, have created a way to investigate biophysical cellular interactions in the circulation system using common, off-the-shelf lab materials.
Giuliana Salazar-Noratto, a third-year Ph.D. student from the lab of Bob Guldberg, has won a National Science Foundation GROW (for Graduate Research Opportunities Worldwide) award.
Entrepreneurial duo wins award for oral presentation in research symposium.
Kaci Crawford and Cory Turbyfield have learned very quickly that what you say truly matters, especially when you know what you’re talking about. The pair of undergraduates from the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) recently took first place for Best Oral Presentation in the 10th annual Undergraduate Research Spring Symposium at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Bharat Sanders, an undergraduate student in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), has won a $6,000 Campus Life Scholarship, which recognizes and rewards students that have positively impacted the university community through leadership, scholarship, and service.
Diaz Ortiz takes highest honor from College of Engineering. Former Petit Undergraduate Research Scholar Maria Diaz Ortiz walked away with the Tau Beta Pi Award, the highest honor granted to graduating seniors by the College of Engineering (COE) at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Diaz Ortiz was one of several BME students to receive or be nominated for national, institute, or College of Engineering awards.
