Systems Engineering Seminar: Real-Time Tumor Tracking
March 7, 2016

How can engineers improve cancer treatment? Recent graduate Erich Walker has a big idea: let's use systems engineering principles to help make external beam radiation therapy more effective.

External beam radiation therapy, or EBRT, is a common type of cancer therapy that directs a beam of radiation from outside the body at the cancerous tissues inside the body.

Systems Engineering Seminar: Device Will Help Doctors Treat Asthma and Allergies
January 7, 2016

As it happens with many medical conditions, doctors often have to rely on their patients’ memories to help them come up with the best treatments.

In the case of asthma and allergies, an allergist might ask his/her patient questions about weekly inhaler use, typical symptoms, the locations and situations where the inhaler was needed, and specific activities that might have triggered the symptoms.

It then falls to the patient to accurately recall the answers.
