CWRU Society for Biomaterials (SFB) hosts Biomaterials Day Symposium and Roger E. Marchant Memorial Lecture

On October 15th, Case Western Reserve University’s Society for Biomaterials (SFB) chapter hosted a symposium called SFB Biomaterials Day, where students from Case Western as well as many neighboring universities including: Carnegie Mellon University, University of Michigan, University of Pittsburgh, University of Toledo, University of Cincinnati, and Cleveland State University participated by presenting their cutting edge research in the field of biomaterials.  The event also featured a Memorial Keynote Lecture in honor of longtime biomedical engineering professor, Prof. Roger E. Marchant, Ph.D., where the keynote speaker was Prof. David Kohn from the University of Michigan who is the current President Elect of SFB.  At the end of the lecture Prof. Kohn was presented with a memorial plaque by Dr. Kandice  Marchant.

Our CWRU students showed a strong presence, giving over 20 poster and podium presentations. CWRU BME students Monika Goss and Michael Sun won awards in the categories of top podium and poster presentations.  Honorable mentions were given to DaShawn Hickman, Griffin Rial, Lenitza Nieves, and Elizabeth Doolittle, all of CWRU.

The event was financially supported by the Society for Biomaterials, CWRU Biomedical Engineering department, Athersys, the Provost’s office, and the Roger E. Marchant Memorial Fund.    The main organizers of the event were CWRU students Nadia Ayat and Andrew L. Schilb, with the help of chapter advisors Dr. Anirban Sen Gupta and Dr. Nicholas Ziats.
