September 2, 2014

A University of Rochester Biomedical Engineering team led by Professor Scott Seidman took second place at the BMES Coulter College program. Coulter College is a training program focused on translation of biomedical innovations involving student design teams guided by faculty and clinical experts. Nineteen teams participated in this year's program, including over 200 students, faculty, and clinical collaborators. 

The BME team is Namita Sarraf, Ling Yang, Rachel Niu, Stephanie Rigot, Nuley Seo, and Benjamin Dengler. The team developed a concept for a device to monitor a condition called autonomic dysreflexia, which is a potentially fatal syndrome that is common in people with spinal cord injuires.
