Chemical and Biomedical Engineering

The Washkewicz College of Engineering's Annual Research Day.

The Washkewicz College of Engineering held its Annual Research Day on October 27, 2017.  The keynote speaker, Dr. D. Geoffrey Vince, The Virginia Lois Kennedy Chair in Biomedical Engineering and Applied Therapeutics, Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Lerner Research Institute of the Cleveland Clinic, gave an excellent presentation related to his research and innovation career at the Cleveland Clinic and in industry.

There was a record number of almost 50 poster presentations this year. Two teams from Chemical and Biomedical Engineering were recognized for their hard work. 


The judges had a hard time picking the winners, but eventually selected the following:

1st place:
"Toward Minimal-Sensing Activity Mode Recognition for Transfemoral Amputees”, by Hanieh Mohammadi, Gholamreza Khademi and Dan Simon, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

2nd place:

"US EPA Transform Tox Testing Challenge: 384-Pillar plate for assessing metabolism-induced toxicity with 3D printed cells”, by Kyeong-Nam Yu, Soo-Yeon Kang, Pranav Joshi and Moo-Yeal Lee, Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering

3rd place:
"Nonlinear Tracking Control of an Antagonistic Muscle Pair Actuated System”, by Holly Warner, Hanz Richter and Antonie van den Bogert, Department of Mechanical Engineering

In addition, the poster Awards Committee identified two Honorable Mentions:

"Quantifying 3D Cell Migration on a High-Throughput Microwell Chip Platform” by Stephen Hong, Sean Yu, Alexander Roth, Yana Sichkar and Moo-Yeal Lee, Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering

"Virtual Muscle Reflex Control and Impedance Control in Describing Perturbed Walking” by Sandra K. Hnat and Antonie J. van den Bogert, Department of Mechanical Engineering


The winning posters will be on display in the lobby of Fenn Hall until the next Research Day.  Click here for more information about Research Day.
