BME Team Finishes Third at Coulter College Competition!

Comments Off

Coulter Team

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.

BMES

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.org
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.

The biomedical engineering and life science faculty have been busy this past summer implementing new activities and opportunities for our freshman through senior students.  Returning students have noticed that room E108 – Bioinstrumentation Lab now has a new look.  The biomechanics gait analysis laboratory has secured funding from the DENSO Foundation to support research in human and machine interaction (see story on page xx).  We are very excited about this collaboration with the electrical engineering and robotic engineering programs.  Freshman students are enjoying working in the new collaboration space in room E109.   When you are on your way to the Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope or the BioMEMS laboratories, stop by to check out the new learning environment.

The Life Science Advisory Board welcomes two new members.  Mrs. Janelle Schrot from Materilize (MIMICS suite) and Dr. Ren You from Terumo Heart Inc. We look forward to working with these members and organizations as we continue to improve and expand the biomedical engineering program.

Finally, the biomedical engineering program thanks all the students and alumni who accepted the invitation to participate in the focus group meetings in the spring semester.  The focus groups provided valuable input on the needs and expectations of program graduates.  The biomedical engineering program educational objectives articulate the expected capabilities of graduates 3 to 5 years after graduation and they are:

  1. Graduates of the BSBME program apply foundational sciences and a wide range of engineering principles in order to lead cross-functional teams developing, designing, and verifying the function of medical technologies and services.   
  2.  Graduates of the BSBME program conduct translational biomedical engineering research while adhering to government compliance requirements and regulatory protocols.
  3.  Graduates of the BSBME program exhibit and demand the highest ethical and safety standards in their research and profession.
  4.  Graduates of the BSBME program are contributing members of the profession and society, and stay informed of current research and professional developments through advanced graduate studies and life-long education.

Enjoy your fall semester and your journey in discovering Lawrence Technological University!

This summer I had the wonderful opportunity of conducting neuro-engineering research at New Jersey Institute of Technology. This National Science Foundation-funded Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program was one-of-a-kind research experience. My team and I had the pleasure of working under the direction of NJIT professor who is doing pioneering research in neuro-engineering, It’s burgeoning field that uses engineering to analyze, repair, or enhance the nervous system.

Neurite Outgrowth

Neurite Outgrowth

My team’s project is entitled “Encapsulation of Schwann cells for Neurite Outgrowth in a Microfluidic Device”. Our study explored the effectiveness of Schwann cell (SC) microencapsulation for Growth Fact or (GF) release using a microfluidic device for simplified analysis. SC surrounded in a polyelectrolyte membrane, Alginate-Poly-L-Lyine-Alginate (APA), were co-cultured with PC12 cells to model neurite formation. Results showed that microencapsulated SC elicited neurite outgrowth and neural cell differentiation in-vitro. This showed that microencapsulated Schwann cells secrete enough Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) to induce nerve growth. SC encapsulated in APA have yet to be studied in relation to how they differentiate neural cells. This study has showed that after encapsulating SC in APA spheres the SC were able to induce neurite outgrowth from PC12 cells. This concept can be applied to the treatment of nerve regeneration in patients affected by neuropathy.
