Girls Participate In Summer Research Program at OSU
Posted August 16, 2012
This summer, five Columbus School for Girls students participated in a summer research program in the labs at The Ohio State University. For the seventh consecutive summer, CSG girls have worked closely with faculty and graduate students in engineering and science labs performing hands-on research. On August 10, 2012, the girls each presented their research in a Symposium at The Ohio State University.
Jessica Greer, Form XII, worked in Prof. Stephen Lee's laboratory in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute. The title of her presentation was “ImmunoFET Technology for Protein Detection with Applications in Transplant Medicine.”
Jasneet Singh, Form XII, worked in Prof. Len Brillson’s Surfaces and Interfaces Laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Her presentation was entitled, “Surface Analysis of ZnO and SrTiO3.”
Katelyn Lennon, Form XII, spent her summer as part of the EcoCAR Team at the Center for Automotive Research under the direction of Prof. Giorgio Rizzoni. The title of her presentation was “Battery Cooling Plate Heat Transfer Experiment.”
Carly Green, Form XII, worked in the lab of Prof. John Lannutti of the Department of Material Science and Engineering. During the summer, she studied the production and properties of electrospun fibers. The title of her presentation was “Electrospun PVDF Sensors for Biomedical Applications.”
Asia Cunningham, Form XII, was employed in the lab of Prof. Heather Powell of the Department of Material Science and Engineering. Her presentation was entitled “Structural and Mechanical Analysis of Vascular Scaffolds following Cyclic Stimulation.”
The Columbus School for Girls would like to thank all of the researchers at The Ohio State University who participated in this program and especially Prof. Len Brillson and Ms. Michelle McCombs of Ohio State’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Funding of this program was also made possible with support from the National Science Foundation, The Ohio State University’s College of Engineering and Center for Affordable Nanoengineering of Polymeric Biomedical Devices.
