The Case Western Reserve University Baja Team competed in its second competition of the season earlier this month in Mechanicsville, Md., earning its best performance since the team started in 2001.
In the final event of the competition, which was a four-hour endurance race against more than 100 teams, CWRU finished in fifth place. The results put the team in the same category as schools such as Cornell University and Rochester Institute of Technology.
Graduate students in the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering invite all engineering and science post-doctorate, graduate and undergraduate students to the Polymer Initiative of Northeast Ohio (PiNO) conference Friday, June 12, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center.
PiNO is a one-day conference that allows students seeking internships, co-ops or full-time employment to present posters and network with industry representatives from numerous companies. The event consists of a judged poster session, a keynote speaker, resume workshops and a job fair. John Nottingham, Nottingham Spirk co-founder and co-president, will give the keynote address.
Last week, think[box] manager Ian Charnas traveled to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., to share some of Case Western Reserve University’s innovation center’s successes as part of the lab’s series of LEAP Innovation seminars.
In particular, Charnas was invited to discuss and field questions about the center after hearing how a student inventor was able to take an idea through several steps of innovation in a matter of weeks instead of months or even years it can often take.

A CWRU student team has been chosen as finalists for the Student Technology Prize for Primary Health Care, a national and highly selective competition seeking innovations that have a substantial potential to support the improved delivery of care at the frontlines of medicine.
The competition is organized annually by Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology (CIMIT), a nonprofit consortium of Boston's leading teaching hospitals and universities.
Shoshana Ginsburg, a PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) won the top prize for her work "Differences between computer-extracted multi-parametric MRI features associated with central gland and peripheral zone tumors" at the recently concluded Research ShowCASE.
Ginsburg was officially recognized during the graduate student ceremony on April 27th. She is mentored by Anant Madabhushi, professor of biomedical engineering and CCIPD director.
