Biomedical Engineering Department Shines a Spotlight on Student Research
Biomedical engineering student Alec Salminen presents his research on how, "Crizotinib and Ceritinib Induce Apoptosis and Necrosis in Primary Rat Hepatocytes with Distinct Capacity" to Professor Hanna Jensen.
On Wednesday, April 27, students in the Department of Biomedical Engineering gathered in the John A. White Jr. Engineering Hall to present research in the Department's annual Honors Research Symposium. For students, the event is not only a chance to share the research they're been working on with peers and faculty, but a necessary step towards graduating with honors in May — all students looking to do so are required to defend their research to their faculty adviser, and at least two other faculty members over the course of the event. As student Parker Davidson, who presented research on the behaviors of organic/inorganic composite bone scaffolds, explained, "it's [a] nerve wracking, but exciting" evening.
