PhD student Vincent Tutino

Vincent Tutino - BME PhD student

On Thursday, April 7th, students who had placed within their department's poster presentations competed at the school-wide level. We are pleased to announce that our Biomedical Engineering representatives performed very strongly. Vincent Tutino won 3rd place in the poster competition.  

Winners of BME Poster Competition

Biomedical Engineering graduate students presented their research on March 23 to fellow students and faculty for an opportunity to compete at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences graduate research competition in early April.

Biomedical Engineering faculty assessed each student in three main areas: the strength of their research; their ability to communicate their results to a non-specialist; and the overall display and presentation of their poster. 

The high caliber of our students and the quality of their research was evident throughout the event, but the faculty selected the top two graduate students to advance to the school-wide competition:

Vincent M. Tutino

Title: Transcriptome Profiling of Circulating Neutrophils Reveals Intracranial Aneurysm Signature as a Potential Diagnostic Biomarker

Advisor: Dr. Hui Meng


Qixin Wang

Title: Circulating and intracellular microRNAs as biomarkers for pulmonary cytotoxicity evaluation of multi-wall carbon nanotube

Advisor: Dr. Yun Wu

Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate students were also invited to participate in the BME poster competition this year. Special recognition is given to BME senior Ryan O’Hara, the prize-winner of the undergraduate group:

Ryan O’Hara

Title: Advanced 3D Mesh Manipulation in Stereolithographic Files and Post-Print Processing for the Manufacturing of Patient-Specific Vascular Flow Phantoms

Advisor: Dr. Ciprian Ionita
