Society of Automotive Engineers Awards Environmental Excellence in Transportation Award to Professor Heejung Jung
Professor Jung received the Environmental Excellence in Transportation Award in April 2020 from Society of Automotive Engineers for his research on vehicle cabin air quality. He led a team or researchers that included four of his former students and three colleagues. Air pollutant concentrations including mobile source air toxics on-road is much higher compared to ambient background concentrations. Passengers riding vehicles are exposed to these high concentration air pollutants as they infiltrate into the cabin. Previous studies reported people living in urban areas are exposed to air
NSF - Partnerships for Innovation - Technology Translation (PFI-TT) Program awarded $250k to Professor Aguilar and his group
This project builds on prior NSF-funded research (I-Corps), to develop a portable perfusion monitoring (PPM) device to observe blood flow to and from a surgical site, both during and post-surgery. As conventional surgical blood flow monitoring systems are bulky and expensive, the approach taken in this project allows for a compact and affordable device with the potential to serve surgeons and patients alike. The proposed system will increase the use of blood flow monitoring devices for use in reconstructive plastic surgery, with potential to spread to other applications, such as bedsores
