The Bioengineering undergraduate organization, BMES, won first prize for Best Presentation of a Society at this year’s College of Engineering Engineering Open House. The BMES presentation consisted of five functioning exhibits including an emergency diagnostic device, an electrooculogram for use in aviation control, and software that displays genomic pathways in a variety of organisms. Additionally, there was a genetic engineering display constructed with demonstration E.coli transfection, genomic pathway software, and a microscope displaying mice stem cells. The final exhibit was the Peerless Probe, a pre-biospsy tumor-detection needle, a created by bioengineering senior design team Heather August, Michelle Hattan, and Pratik Randeria.
