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.

Ian’s Friends Foundation Recognizes Best Biomedical Engineering Senior Capstone Project Ideas.
Coulter Department completes sweep for 2014-2015 school year. The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering continued its domination of the Capstone Design Expo at the Georgia Institute of Technology. For the third straight semester, a Coulter Department team took top prize as the overall winner in the expo.
Team OculoStaple is runner-up in InVenture Prize competition.
OcculoStaple, comprised of one current student in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering (Padilla) and two recent graduates (Najia and Borinski graduated with their BME degrees in December) won $10,000 in second-place prize money.
A team with technology that could help monitor the condition of cats and dogs with diabetes won Georgia Tech’s 2015 Startup Competition ($15,000, plus the Edison Prize: a $15,000 convertible note). The winning team, Bioletics, evolved through Georgia Tech’s Technological Innovation: Generating Economic Results (TI:GER) Program, which teams Georgia Tech MBA students with Emory law students who work together on commercializing PhD students’ scientific research. Bioletics’ Yogi Patel, a PhD candidate in bioengineering at Georgia Tech, says that his team was originally focused on developing an implantable device to help monitor diabetes in humans, but recognized that the FDA hurdles to taking such a product to market would be significant.
Third place ($250) went to Eli Fine, a student in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering and a member of Gang Bao’s lab, where his thesis research focuses on developing novel approaches to precisely modify the genetic information stored in DNA.
