LTU Faculty conduct Hands-on Workshop at ASEE Annual Conference

Comments Off on LTU Faculty conduct Hands-on Workshop at ASEE Annual Conference

Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer along with Dr. Michael Rust from Western New England University conducted a hands-on workshop at the 2017 American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference in Columbus, OH. The workshop in the BME division was titled “Hands-on activities for Prototyping and Ideation in Biomedical Engineering”. 

The faculty had prepared electronic kits containing open hardware and various sensors for the participants and shared how the kits can be incorporated in learning modules in classroom. The use of these types of kits promotes student-instructor interaction and builds confidence in students to create functional prototypes.

The workshop was attended by 11 participants and there was a healthy conversation during and after the workshop. The development of kits and learning modules is being supported by The Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network (KEEN) topical grant that Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer received last year.

Comments Off on Microfluidics Symposium 2017 – University of Michigan

The Microfluidics in Biomedical Sciences Training Program (MBSTP) is a National Institute of Health (NIH) / National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) funding training program that supports an interdisciplinary approach to graduate training that emphasizes biomedical microfluidics.

Every year they hold a symposium at University of Michigan focusing on Microfluidics and Lab-on-a-chip devices. This year’s symposium is on May 3rd, 2017 and the guest speaker is Dr. Stephen Quake (Stanford), who is a highly respected research scientist in this area. There is also a student poster session. The event is highly recommended from any BME students interested in learning about graduate research.
