Neurosurgeons could one day thank Ollin Venegas’ MD’20 presentation to high school students for allowing them to create detailed brain models of their patients. Venegas has been developing 3D models of the human brain, aiming to provide an educational tool and tactile illustration of the effects of concussions and other head traumas. Working alongside Zak Ziebell ’19, a RISD dual-degree student, Patrick Rashleigh, a data visualization coordinator for the University and other group members, Venegas has created a model that shows both the internal and external impacts of head injuries. - Chris Schutte, Brown Daily Herald

Arguably the only thing more difficult than pursuing a BFA at RISD or an AB at Brown University is doing both—simultaneously. But a small group of brilliant and extremely motivated undergraduates are doing just that—integrating academic and artistic pursuits over the course of five years to develop a unique and cohesive course of study through the Brown|RISD Dual Degree (BRDD) program. —Simone Solondz, RISD Media
