MechE Students Heat Up the 50th Society for Cryobiology Meeting

Professor Shimada, Rabin and team

Professor Yoed Rabin and a team of MechE students from the Biothermal Technology Laboratory met with great success this July at the 50th Anniversary of the Society for Cryobiology in Bethesda, Maryland. He and adjunct professor Mike Taylor co-organized a leading symposium on Enabling Technologies in Cryomedicine.

Justin Feig won the prestigious Peter J. Steponkus Crystal Award which “recognizes outstanding student research for the best student oral presentation at the annual meeting.”  Justin and four other students, Anjali Sehrawat, Lili Ehrlich, David Eisenberg, and Chandrajit Thaokar, were awarded the highly competitive Student Travel Award for their conference papers.

Team Rabin, a group of students from the Biothermal Technology Laboratory, also won the Scavenger Hunt in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in DC – an International Cryobiology Young Researchers event, awarded at the conference banquet.  

Congratulations to the team for their hard work!
