During spring break, Case Western Reserve University students and faculty traveled to Uganda to work with Ugandan colleagues in the social sciences and engineering on two global health projects. The project is part of an initiative linking Case Western Reserve students with biomedical engineering students at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda.
Led by Andrew Rollins, professor of biomedical engineering, and Janet McGrath, professor of anthropology, the initiative, an offshoot of the Uganda-Case Western Reserve University Research Collaboration that began in 1988, brings medical anthropology and engineering students and faculty together to address global health problems.
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.
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.
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.
More than 400 innovative ideas from the minds of students, faculty and staff at Case Western Reserve University are on display today at Research ShowCASE.
The annual event gives the campus community the opportunity to present its research and creative projects. It also gives the outside community the chance to see the broad and diverse work being done across the university.
Research ShowCASE will take place today, April 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Veale Convocation, Recreation and Athletic Center.
Check out the Plain Dealer’s coverage of the event.
