Research Quick Takes

DIADH team 2024

ENTerpoint Surgical Navigation System

The Dartmouth Innovation Accelerator for Digital Health(DIADH)—a partnership between the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health and the Magnuson Center—awarded $50,000 to a team (pictured) led by alum Yuan Shi Th'24, that includes Professor Ryan Halter, for their "ENTerpoint Surgical Navigation System." The system "has the potential to significantly enhance safety and efficacy of transoral robotic surgery while reducing costs," says Shi.

Steven Ionov at IDeA

Scientific Merit Award

PhD candidate Steven Ionov presented work out of Jiwon Lee's lab that received a Scientific Merit Award at the National IDeA Symposium of Biomedical Research Excellence (NISBRE) in Washington DC. "People with cystic fibrosis are at increased risk of life-threatening bacterial infections when infected with virus, and their responses to viral vaccines are understudied," said Ionov. "The presented work was a high-resolution description of the serum antibody responses to COVID vaccination in patients with cystic fibrosis."

Aleah Sommers

Glacier Surges & Floods

Research Scientist Aleah Sommers (pictured) and Professor Colin Meyer won a two-year ~$180,000 NASA grant to work with international collaborators in Pakistan to study the influence of water flowing at the base of glaciers in High Mountain Asia. "Improved understanding of subglacial drainage has great potential benefit for hazard prediction and water resources, in terms of how they are likely to change with continued warming," says Sommers.

Roman Vasyltsiv

Best Oral Presentation

PhD student Roman Vasyltsiv received a "Best Young Researcher Oral Presentation" certificate at the International Conference on 3D dosimetry in Aarhus, Denmark. Roman presented his work on detection of radiation dose delivery in real time from ultra-high dose rate proton therapy systems using scintillation meshes applied to the patient's surface and ultra-fast cameras.

Materials for Flexible Transparent Electronics

Professor Will Scheideler collaborated with Professor Kenji Nomura of UCSD to write a review titled "Advances in Liquid Metal Printed 2D Oxide Electronics," published in Advanced Functional Materials. Their paper highlights recent advances in ultrathin liquid-metal-derived 2D semiconductors for high-performance flexible circuits, display technology, and neuromorphic computing.

Kasia Warburton

Travel Fellowship

Postdoc and lecturer Kasia Warburton was selected for a Thomas Hughes Fellowship to attend the 2024 International Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM) in Korea in August, sponsored by the National Academies. She will present an invited talk on fluid mechanical challenges for sustainability and climate change titled, "Evolving permeability of sub- and supra- glacial flow."

Megan Clark

Best in Physics

PhD student Megan Clark Th'21 is first author on a submission named "Best in Physics" for the National American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Annual Meeting & Exhibition to be held in Los Angeles in July. The submission is titled "Anesthetic Concentration, Type, and Duration in Murine Model to Play an Essential Role in Tissue Oxygenation and Reproducibility of the Flash Effect." Coauthors include Arthur Pétusseau Th'23 and professors David Gladstone, Brian Pogue, Petr Brůža, and Jack Hoopes.

Oral Retractor for Robotic Surgery

PhD researcher Yuan Shi, alum Xiaotian Wu '14 Th'19, Professor Ryan Halter, and Adjunct Professor Joseph Paydarfar co-authored "An Imaging-Compatible Oral Retractor System for Transoral Robotic Surgery," published in Annals of Biomedical Engineering. "This device enables artifact-free imaging, which makes intra-operative image guidance possible," said Shi. "We are getting ready to use this novel retractor system in a clinical study at DHMC."
