Amulya Elamanchili


Undergrad Researcher

Georgia Institute of Technology

 

Research Interests

Stem Cell Engineering
Nanotechnology

 

Amuyla is a current student at Georgia Institute of Technology pursuing an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Psychology. Her research involves metabolomic analysis for the elucidation of biomarkers of disease and metabolic physiology of proliferation and differentiation of stem cells. Currently she is studying the effect of red blood cell microparticles on blood storage lesions to improve transfusion safety.


Palak Patel


Undergrad Researcher

Georgia Institute of Technology

 

Research Interests

Stem Cell Engineering
Regenerative Medicine
Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering

 

Palak is a student at Georgia Institute of Technology pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical Engineering, minoring in Health and Medical Sciences. She is interested in understanding the relationship between leukemic cells and its microenvironment using biomimetic platforms. The aim of her research is to develop a 3D in vitro model of leukemia (AML and CLL) focusing on culture conditions that support long-term cultures of primary patient samples without exogenous cytokines. This culture system can be used for three potential studies: (i) new drug identifications based on metabolomics, (ii) studying current drug therapies, and (iii) personalization of treatment plans. Her research is performed in the Wallace H. Coulter Biomedical Engineering joint department between Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University in Atlanta.

 


Matthew Nuese


Undergrad Researcher

Georgia Institute of Technology

 

Research Interests

Full-stack web development
In silico pediatric treatment optimization

 

Matthew is a current student undergraduate at Georgia Institute of Technology and researcher for BSEL. His current research is centered around optimizing pediatric chemotherapy treatments for children with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. In general he is fascinated by a broad range of topics from genetics and bioengineering, to philosophy and politics. One example of this breadth is his current challenge of full-stack web development, in order to bring BSEL chemotherapy optimization models to clinicians on an app and website.
