  • CASE-BML's Yunus Alapan is a finalist in the PhD Student Paper Competition in the 2015 Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering, and Biotransport Conference (SB3C) (June 2015). Learn more about this conference

  • CASE-BML Team selected as finalist for the Student Technology Prize for Primary Health Care by Center for Integration of Medicine and Innovative Technology (May 2015). The team has received $10,000 for research expenses and to prepare for the full application in July 2015, in which they will compete for three top prizes: $150,000, $100,000, or $50,000. Learn more

  • Dr. Gurkan has been awarded the Glennan Fellowship by The University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (May 2015). Named after T. Keith Glennan, former President of Case Institute of Technology (1947-1965), the Glennan Fellowship program facilitates faculty growth. Glennan Fellowship is awarded based on promise for a balanced career in both teaching and scholarship. Learn more

  • CASE-BML PhD candidate Yunus Alapan received a Special Recognition Award from the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department (March 2015) for his contributions to Sickle Cell Disease Research at CWRU: (1) for developing a BioChip that allows biophysical interrogation of red blood cells in a rapid and efficient way, which has enabled the largest clinical study of its kind at University Hospitals with participation of more than 100 patients so far; (2) for winning the first place in Medical Category of the 2014 NASA Tech Briefs Create the Future Design Contest, among 1,074 entries from over 60 countries across six continents.

  • Sickle cell research using biochip technology advances at University Hospitals (December 2014). Our clinical study has recently began enrolling patients at University Hospitals Case Medical Center. We are using biochip technology that one day may help physicians better manage the treatment of patients with sickle cell disease. Learn more about this research.

  • We have published a new article in Scientific Reports, titled: Heterogeneous Red Blood Cell Adhesion and Deformability in Sickle Cell Disease (December 2014). Learn more

  • CWRU Team led by EMAE’s Graduate Student Yunus Alapan has won the first place in 2014 NASA Tech Briefs Create the Future Design Contest in Medical Category (October 2014). Yunus Alapan, EMAE graduate student and PhD candidate in CASE-BML, has won the first prize in Medical Category in 2014 NASA Tech Briefs Create the Future Design Contest. CWRU Team lead by Yunus utilized a microengineered design in developing HemeChip, a new device that can identify hemoglobin type in a drop of blood rapidly to diagnose hemoglobin disorders in newborns early. Read more about the contest.
