Biomedical Engineering Students Receive Award at BMEidea Competition

A hemostatic wound dressing, known as ChitO2-Clot, developed by a team of NCE biomedical engineering students took honorable mention for promising technological innovation in the recent 2013 BMEidea Competition.  The cost- effective dressing will facilitate coagulation/clot formation while providing oxygen to the wound, said team lead George Ulsh.  This past April, ChitO2-Clot received the $6,000 first place prize at NJIT’s first-ever Tech Quest, designed and funded by a retired nearby Honeywell scientist.  BMEidea recognizes the best of the best in student-driven, innovative biomedical engineering design with high commercial potential and social impact. First held in 2005, winners of this annual competition are selected from some of the nation’s top biomedical engineering departments and are judged by a panel of faculty and industry representatives.
