Research Experience for Undergraduates & Veterans

additional opportunity specifications for VETERANS noted underlined blue

June 16 – August 22, 2015

The University of Washington Center for Sensorimoimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) will sponsor a summer research program for undergraduate students on the university’s Seattle campus. Students will participate in on going research projects with investigators and will have the opportunity to take part in training sessions designed to provide the undergraduate scientist with solid critical thinking and communication skills that will serve as a foundation for graduate study.

The goal of the CSNE is to leverage an understanding of how biological systems acquire and process information to make smarter machines, and to interface those machines more effectively with the nervous system. This approach is being used by researchers at the Center to develop engineering interventions for neurological disease and injury, as well as to augment normal neural function. Research at the CSNE is focused on reverse-engineering the sensorimotor aspects of the brain, developing neural interfaces, using the neural signals to control external devices, and developing sophisticated algorithms for closed-loop control between humans and machines.

The Program Provides Opportunities To:

  • Participate in on-going neural engineering research at the University of Washington
  • Improve your critical thinking, communication, and scientific presentation skills through sessions designed for student scientists
  • Learn about the emerging field of neuroethics
  • Prepare and present research results to the scientific community

Applicants Must:

  • Devote 40 hours per week to the program
  • Attend weekly classes, seminars, meetings and other required events
  • Prepare and present a research poster at the undergraduate research symposium
  • Make an oral research presentation at the end of the summer
  • Be a US citizen or in the case of the program for Veterans: you must be a Veteran

BMES Conference 2014

Comments Off

Representing Lawrence Tech at the BMES Conference in Texas were (L-R) Daniel Greenshields, Lindsay Petku, Rachel Porter, Akram Alsamarae, Justin Killewald

Five students from the BME department attended the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Conference in San Antonio, Texas to present their findings related to their senior projects. They were exposed to many facets related to Biomedical Engineering. The students attended lectures involving many BME topics and they networked with other attendees.   Dan Greenshields, Rachael Porter, and Justin Killewald presented their poster on a Novel Design of an Anterior Cruciate Ligament for an Injury Prevention Brace.  Their team also won an undergraduate student award for their submission of an extended abstract!  Akram Alsamarae and Lindsay Petku presented a poster related to Gait Analysis for Early Fall Prevention.

BME Team Finishes Third at Coulter College Competition!

Comments Off

Coulter Team

Representing Lawrence Tech at the Coulter College competition in Florida were (L-R) LTU faculty advisor Dr. Mansoor Nasir, Danielle Manley, Akram Alsamarae, Kaitlyn Tingley, Mateusz Koper, Amanda Bukhtia, and Stephen Krammin. At right is clinical advisor, Dr. Molly McClelland, an assistant professor at the University of Detroit Mercy.

Six students from the Biomedical Engineering Department were selected to participate in the Coulter College competition in Miami, Florida. The competition involved students working in teams to address an unmet clinical need. The students participated in a four day competition in which they addressed a problem and found a novel way to solve it. Students were mentored by experts in the Biomedical field and attended lectures pertaining to FDA regulations and intellectual property. On the final day of the competition, student teams pitched their ideas in a similar format to “Shark Tank.” Lawrence Tech. placed 3rd out of 19 schools and they won the popular vote! The experience helped students understand the various steps needed to execute an idea and allowed students to interact with experts in the Biomedical field.

Two student groups are headed to San Antonio, Texas in October to the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Conference to present their findings related to their senior projects.  Dan Greenshields, Rachael Porter, and Justin Killewald will present their poster on a Novel Design of an Anterior Cruciate Ligament for an Injury Prevention Brace.  Their team won an undergraduate student award for their submission of an extended abstract!  Akram Alsamarae and Lindsay Petku will present a poster related to Gait Analysis for Early Fall Prevention. Congratulations to both teams!

Welcome from Patricia Nahas, BMES President

Dear BME Students,

My name is Patricia Nahas and I would like to officially welcome you to the 2014-2015 school
year at Lawrence Technological University. As this year’s BMES President I look forward to the
events the Biomedical Engineering Society is offering in the coming months. My main focus is
to introduce the benefits of BMES to new and current students of the BME program. BMES will
hold LTU chapter events to help students of every class further their knowledge of the field,
network with professionals as well as other students, get involved in charity, and give tours of
lab facilities. This organization also gives access to the BMES national chapter. This is a
valuable resource that informs you of the newest advancements in the industry. It gives you
access to job opportunities around the globe and offers educational lectures given by some of the
top innovators in the biomedical engineering community.

To join, go to:
BMES will hold monthly meetings. Here we will discuss coming events and look for people to
get involved. The other BMES officers and I have planned a few events with details to be
discussed at our first meeting held within the first month of the Fall 2014 semester. More
information will be sent via e-mail and updated on our blog once finalized.

If you would like more information come visit us at the followings events:
