BME’s Anant Madabhushi awarded patent for image-based risk score

Anant Madabhushi, professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, has been awarded U.S. patent 9002092, titled “Image-based risk score—A prognostic predictor of survival and outcome from digital histopathology.”
 
The invention relates to an image-based computer-aided prognosis (CAP) system and method that seeks to replicate the prognostic power of molecular assays in histopathology and pathological processes, including but not limited to cancer.

Engineering student startup takes first place in Spartan Challenge

GreenLite Technology, a Case Western Reserve University student startup company that developed a foot-powered mobile phone charger for developing countries, won first prize in the 2015 Spartan Challenge.
 
Sixteen student teams entered the university’s annual business startup contest, offering—in addition to prize money—seasoned experts to mentor them from concept through planning.
 
Case Western Reserve undergraduate students were invited to join students from the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Music to compete. Participants proceeded through a series of activities emulating the angel- and venture-investment process in two stages.

Think[box] hits 90,000 visits

Case Western Reserve University’s think[box] invention center recently welcomed its 90,000th visitor.
 
Taylor Barto, a third-year electrical engineering major at Cleveland State University, was visiting think[box] to work on an embedded systems project for class.
 
Think[box] opened its doors in Glennan Hall in 2011, giving the campus and regional community access to equipment and resources for turning ideas into inventions. In 2014, the university broke ground on the first phase of the expansion project that will move think[box] into its permanent home—a seven-story, 50,000-square-foot innovation hub.

Undergrads: Apply to intern for 2015 Engineering Education Summer Outreach program

The Center for Civic Engagement and Learning will recruit six undergraduate students to serve in full-time, paid summer internships through the 2015 Engineering Education Summer Outreach program, with support from the Leonard Gelfand STEM Center.
 
This nine-week summer program (June 1 to July 31) will expand access to engineering education by matching Case Western Reserve University undergraduate students with summer youth programs in the Greater Cleveland community. Case Western Reserve student interns will design and implement engineering classes with youth enrolled in the programs. Interns will also have the opportunity to build their civic awareness and leadership skills through regular seminars.
