Humans of Bioengineering: Jasmine Graham

Jasmine Graham is a senior in bioengineering and is working in the Human Photonics Lab, where she is developing an optical pH measurement tool that analyzes bacterial biofilms in our mouths for early cavity detection and prevention. She is part of the Husky Leadership Initiative, co-runs the BioE Study Center and after graduation, is planning to pursue a graduate program at UC Berkeley.

Humans of Bioengineering: Adam Anderson

I’m Adam and I am in Dr. Ruikang (Ricky) Wang’s lab. The lab does OCT (optical coherence tomography) research. The goal of my  capstone is to design an image processing tool for the lab. After I graduate, I am going for a Ph.D at Purdue University because I want the freedom that a Ph.D. offers to choose what I research. I might go into academia afterwards.

Deok-Ho Kim and team awarded Human Frontier Science Program Research Grant

The international research team will investigate the dynamics of collective cell migration on curved surfaces. They aim to understand the mechanistic details of organism development and tissue repair, which could inform approaches in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

Humans of Bioengineering: Kim Hua

I’m Kim, and I’m in the GRID/Neural Systems lab. My project is about restoring tactile feedback through electrocorticography grids (ECoG) via the somatosensory cortex, or more simply put, how to make people feel again. After graduation, I’ll be traveling in Europe just for fun. I think this will be the last time I’ll get to travel for an extended period without having to worry about school or jobs. Afterwards, I’ll be working in ultrasound systems at Philips as a software engineer.
