Girl Scouts learn engineering principles by building miniature roller coasters, an activity made possible by a STEM Mentoring Grant received by JHU’s Sridevi Sarma.
The digital model has yielded important clues that could provide treatment targets for drugmakers.
New department head Michael Miller outlines plan to hire 10 new BME faculty members in key disciplines in coming months.
Sepsis contributes to as many as 50% of hospital deaths. A new tool developed by Johns Hopkins engineer Suchi Saria could help doctors spot sepsis before it’s too late.
Suchi Saria will discuss her research on statistical machine learning and its application to developing data-driven systems for augmenting human decision-making capability for diagnostics and treatment planning.
Her research combines modeling, estimation, and control of dynamical systems with neurophysiology.
Natalia Trayanova was selected for her “distinguished contributions to and leadership in the field of medical and biological engineering at an international level.”
The grant to support a physics project—a roller coaster building contest—with the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland.
Computer scientist whose algorithms help detect life-threatening sepsis named to ’35 Innovators Under 35′ list.
