Lena and Shiva win Cornell BioExpo
Lena Liu ’15 and Shiva Chettiar ‘15 took home first prize at the 13th annual BioExpo Research Symposium, presenting their poster on the use of femtosecond laser ablation technology as a less-invasive surgical method for the treatment of focal epilepsy. The symposium was organized by the Cornell Institute of Biomedical Engineering and featured posters by undergraduates and M.Eng students as well as several guest speakers. Their poster, “Sub-surface cortical incisions produced using femtosecond laser pulses block propagation of focally-initiated epileptic seizures”, earned them a monetary award of $500.
