Juergen Hahn, head of the department of biomedical engineering at Rensselaer, has recently been named 2019-2021 Computing & Systems Technology Division Director for AIChE, a professional organization for chemical engineers.
Leo Wan, associate professor of biomedical engineering at Rensselaer, collaborated on cardiac cell research recently published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The study, led by a developmental biologist at Albany Medical Center, investigated molecular mechanisms of cardiac cell orientation and the significance of that process in early heart development.
Wan’s research has been focused on the chirality, or “handedness” of cells. He has found that the healthy development and looping of the heart depend on chirality of cells. He has also discovered that some diseases, like diabetes, cause cells to reverse orientation.
Shekhar Garde, dean of the School of Engineering at Rensselaer, recently received the 2019 BMM Award in Science, Technology, Education and Research.
Bruhan Maharashtra Mandal (BMM) is a non-profit organization in North America aimed at preserving and promoting the Marathi culture from Maharashtra, a western state in India.
Every other year, BMM organizes a convention in North America. There it recognizes members of the Marathi community “for their outstanding personal achievements and contributions to society.”
This year’s conference was held in Dallas, Texas.
