Student Projects

Below are just some of the research projects that students have worked on over the last several years. Students have worked closely with faculty in the Bioengineering Program at Union College and also worked on research projects during the summers at a number of different research universities and institutes including the University of Pennsylvania, Wadsworth Institute, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
