The Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group (IMG) is a college-wide multi-departmental education and research program of the College of Engineering at the University of Florida.
Camilo Velez Cuervo was awarded "Best Poster" for "Analysis of Microscale Permanent Magnets for Capturing Magnetic Particles in Biological Fluids" at the 2015 Frontiers in Biomagnetic Particles Conference in Telluride, CO. Congratulations to Camilo, Alexandra, and other co-authors!
The UF Smart Mouthguard team won 2nd place in the International Contest of Applications in Nano/Micro Technologies (iCAN 2015).
iCAN is an international competition for college students, to promote the innovative spirits of youth, to construct collaboration platforms, and to increase applications of nano-micro technology. More than 15,000 students participated in the contest and 19 finalist teams from 12 countries were invited to the finals held in Anchorage, AK, June 20 - 22, 2015. The UF team represented the USA and won 2nd place out of the 19 finalist teams.
The UF team included
Students: Justin Correll (ECE, Undergrad), Tim Ajmani (ECE, Undergrad), Troy Templin (BME, Undergrad), Sheng-Po Fang (ECE, Graduate)
Advisors: YK Yoon (ECE), Fong Wong (Dentistry), Huikai Xie (ECE)
