26 ScB, 26 ScM, and 8 PhD degrees in biomedical engineering were awarded at commencements on May 28, 2023.
Kiara Lee will graduate with a doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering and a master’s degree in Global Public health, which she earned through the Open Graduate Education Program. Her dissertation, Leveraging Biotransport Mechanisms in the Design of Technologies to Improve Access to Blood-Based Diagnostics, was selected for the Joukowsky Prize in the life sciences.
A new imaging technique opens a path toward long-term study of blood vessels in aging brains and could help predict neurodegenerative diseases decades before symptoms begin.
BME and econ concentrator Moksh Mehta '26 and psychology and physics concentrator Vini Rupchandani '24 are working on Irada, a mobile application that creates a personalized Ikigai - a Japanese concept referring to the union of passion, mission, profession, and vocation - profile and allows users to set ‘Ikigoals’ using behavioral change techniques and social incentives.
Congratulations Alex, Akshit, Mallory, Nipun, Daniel, Aditi, Stephen, Emma, Jonah, Adam, and Ruth!
