WGRZ-TV’s City Shaper feature looks at the work being conducted by UB’s Clinical and Translational Research Center, and interviews Vincent Tutino, research assistant professor of biomedical engineering, who is working to develop a blood test that can detect brain aneurisms before they rupture.

“The goal is to give people an inexpensive, non-invasive way to see if they have an unruptured brain  aneurysm,” he said.

Tutino, a PhD graduate from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, is a co-founder of Neurovascular Diagnostics Inc., along with Hui Meng, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and entrepreneur Jeff Harvey. The company recently received a $224,000 Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award from the NSF.
