Researchers at the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics at Case Western Reserve University, directed by professor of biomedical engineering Anant Madabhushi, recently won three awards to support imaging research.
The awards include a Department of Defense Idea grant, VeloSano Pilot grant and a Cancer Center pilot grant to support research efforts to improve the diagnosis and treatment of prostate, lung and breast cancers.
Case Western Reserve University engineers are making sensors that can be integrated into existing materials, transforming today’s homes and commercial buildings into energy-saving, tech-savvy “smart buildings.”
Their work is funded by a $750,000 “incubator” award from the U.S. Department of Energy.
A smart building is one equipped with lighting, heating and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by phone or computer.
The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has selected Scott P. Bruder as the 2015 recipient of the Pierre Galletti Award, the highest honor AIMBE bestows on an individual.
Bruder serves as an adjunct professor of biomedical engineering at Case Western Reserve University and leads his own consulting firm, Bruder Consulting International. He was most recently the chief medical and science officer at Stryker Corporation where he designed the company-wide efforts related to innovation, evidence-based medicine and intellectual property business strategy.
Jenny Parvani, a postdoctoral fellow working in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, has won a three-year fellowship from the Department of Defense to support breast cancer research.
Parvani has been working with faculty mentors Zheng-Rong Lu, the M. Frank and Margaret Domiter Rudy Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and William P. Schiemann, co-director of the Developing Breast Cancer Program at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.
