The Institute for Engineering in Medicine Innovation Showcase is a great networking opportunity for researchers in medicine and engineering, medical device manufactures, law firms, and members of the investment community. During the program, University research centers will be on hand to provide hands-on demonstrations of their capabilities, research, and supporting science. Throughout the night, presentations by leading researchers will be made in the main room. This year's highlighted demonstrators include:
Arindam Banerjee, Ph.D. & Nikolaos Papanikolopoulous, Ph.D., "Cancer Detection Using Computer Vision Techniques"
Victor Barocas, Ph.D., "Multiscale Model of Glomerular Capillary Remodeling"
Blaine Schneider, Ph.D., "Non-Invasive Treatment for Carpal Tunnel and Other Collagen Related Abnormalities"
Ashish Singal, Ph.D. Candidate, "Electromagnetic Field Modulation of Medical Device Surfaces to Impede Biofilm Formation"
Openings are still available for corporate sponsorships, exhibitors, and current UMN student interested in our poster session. Poster submissions from graduate students on any subject interfacing engineering and biomedicine are invited. The top four posters will receive best poster awards, including (1) $500 and (3) $200 awards.
